More Moose & Bonus Critter Video – July 9, 2022

Recently I related my first moose encounter in Vermont, and included a couple of cell phone photographs. That day I took a few shots with a better camera and lens, and last night finally had the chance to see what they looked like. Here’s a couple of them:

Vermont Moose
Young Bull Moose

It was fairly early in the morning as I took these photos, shooting east into the sun. I was about 150 yards from the moose, using the old Nikon D90 DSLR with a Nikkor 18-200mm DX zoom lens.

As for the “Bonus Critters”, below are a couple of videos taken from the patio recently. The first is of an energetic beaver heading upstream. He definitely was on a mission. The second is of a pair of bald eagles swooping across the pond. They were stalking a flock of Canada geese and goslings swimming across the pond. Apologies for the jerky tracking on that video- it was challenging trying to track two birds in the air.
