For The Moose Fans

I am turning my blog over to My Vickie today.  Hope you enjoy.
Bert


Couldn't help putting in these two links to our trip up to check on our moose this week. Both videos were take by my friend John Hemenway who is a wildlife photographer. 
This first one is a bit long but well worth it.  Five bull moose in all.  It was so incredible.  The two that are playfully sparing are brothers who hang out together.  Check out the antlers as they come near the eye.  Thank goodness the velvet is still on.

This one is very short but it is playful and cute to watch as the little one bounces through the forest and tries to engage a deer to play with it.  This little one thought I was a playmate and darted right to me.  When I realized what it was doing and that momma was so close, I had to firmly tell her "No, go away little one"  
Yes, I do have a bit of sense.  Not much....but a bit.

Thanks Bert for letting me take over for a bit.  As a reward, how about I take you swimmin?

Hey My Vickie ^^

Moose? What's the plural of Moose? Mise? Mooses... I saw three of them in the video. And they were kissing each other... maybe because of love ^^.

Huggies and Cheese,

Hi Vickie and Bert, Loved this because I have fallen in love with Moose. We first saw them several years ago when we were camping-they are so adorable. Thanks for sharing the videos too-so great.
I know Bert will have such fun swimming. Have fun you two.

Wow, Burt and your Vickie, my Mommy loves Moosesses. She even has a human stuffie that we can't play with, not fun, in the shape of a moose. When she was a puppy, her grandfather brought it to her from Glacier national park. His name is Muckie Moose.We don't touch it, because it is Muckie Moose.

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Does Allred have any favorite toys?

Moose are one of my favorites--I loved seeing them in Alaska, and I've loved seeing them in this post too!!

Murphy said...

That is a lot of mooses! (Is this by South Fork?) I think you are waaaaay too close to them! Yes, Bert needs to go swimming so he can forgive you for taking over his blog.

Your friends,

Murphy & Stanley

Mouse are really strange animals, nothing like the animals here in Australia.

Sagira said...

Wow, how neat that you guys get to see this in the wild. Mom must admit she would probably be a bit scared to see this in real life but sure does enjoy all the videos and pics you post about the Moose. :)

Carol said...

What a wonderful place. I can't believe you all can get that close to them.

Bert, don't you think you have the best Vickie in the whole word? The swimming session must have been great, yea? I love to see you swim cos your butt is always sticking up and out, hehe. These moose are soooo cute. Can hardly believe they are wild. I have an urge to pet them, hehe.

Love,

I love it when that bouncing Bambi goes by. Baby Moose is all "what the heck? Did you see that Mom?"

Momma is "whatever."

Slobbers,
