Moose Selfie and Camera "Attack"

The wildlife activity is starting to wind down, like it does every year at this time. However, the moose continue to amuse me. They don't leave during the winter so I hope that they'll keep entertaining us all winter long!
Recently, I went to check a trail camera, and I saw it hanging at a funny angle from the tree. It was obvious that "someone" had messed with it. My first thought was a bear, and I checked it with great anticipation that we'd have our final bear view of the year.

I was wrong... a bull moose had rearranged it. He and his lady arrived at a water hole during moose mating season. When they first arrived, they were "talking" in a very whiny way. Make sure that you have your volume on for the video.

Then, the cow moose departed and the bull moose moved toward the camera. He ate for a while next to it, and then he turned his full attention to it. He took a selfie as he rearranged the cam.

I feel very lucky that he didn't destroy the camera. Instead, he turned it so that it was pointed at nothing in particular.

I'm getting zillions of photos and videos of moose these days. I think that they'll keep us entertained for a while!

Here is the video for today! You can watch it here or at Youtube.

  5. Close-up and personal cannot get closer than that. Their feet walking in the water, the sounds are so clear, and gentle talking, wild life like we would not see otherwise.Thanks again for sharing.

  6. Heh, heh. Sounds like she was saying, "not tonight, dear." 😆 Great selfie!

  11. Moose are great, and so talented taking selfies with a trail cam. Hopefully they won't ruin any of your cams.

  12. I am so glad to see how healthy they look going into winter. I havnt been up on my mountain for a few weeks the snow is getting too deep for my little truck and I was getting a little moose withdrawals. Thanks I feel better now.

  13. Cool selfie. The sound of their voices was different that we expected. So interesting to see what your cameras catch.

  14. Poor guy didn't want you to film his bull moose sex

  15. OMD, they sound like an old married couple! So, whatcha think Marge, Aspen or Fir for dinner? Not Aspen, we had that last night ~ fir...definitely Fir.
