NOCTURNAL VISITOR, BIG SKY, MT.

MOOSE

In December, the days are short and the nights are long in Montana, which can screw up your sleeping patterns, but the upside is that your world often meets the nocturnal world.  Apparently, moose are not truly nocturnal, just early risers.  For about a week in the pre-dawn, two bull moose were drawn to the shrubs that surrounded our Montana digs.  Moose are huge animals with big appetites, doing their very best to destroy most of the plant life just outside our windows.  It was fun to wake up every morning, and go from window to window looking for our ugly, hungry friends.  At times, we got within a few feet, separated by a frosty window.  The picture above was shot from our porch, as this big guy got first tracks, illuminated by our porch light.  Enjoy.
