Bragg Creek Wildlife – Moose Run

Last weekend I was touring around Bragg Creek’s back roads in the morning looking for wildlife.  I did not have any close encounters but had this great moment where I watched this moose dash across the meadow and into the dormant forest.  Moose have a grace of movement that you wouldn’t expect from a huge animal.  With the mild winter so far, the grass hasn’t been blanketed by snow which allowed this bull to keep a fast pace and he was gone in a few seconds up a slope that would have taken me a few minutes.

  1. like the gait and the sillouette effect against the bright blue sky and grasses.

  2. We’ve had 5 moose feeding in a hay field just across the road from our house – that is not a sight I ever thought I would see on the Alberta prairie/parkland!
