SkyWatch Friday - Harvest sunset.

Yesterday evening I decided to go scouting for elk.  I saw two elk, two Ruffed grouse, three wolves, a golden eagle and six moose.

Here are two dating moose.


Then they start kissing!!!!!


As I was driving out of the mountains, the sun was just setting.  The dust from the potato harvest along with the thin clouds in the sky, made for a wonderful sunset.


A great way to end a beautiful sunshine filled day in the wilds of Idaho.

Come spring there will be Mama and baby moose. I'm never in the right place to capture a bull moose, just female and calf. These are wonderful shots.

The affectionate moose are wonderful, and so is that colorful sunset.

I am very jealous. I have been looking for moose north of where I live and so far no luck. The sunset is beautiful.

I've never seen ANY of those four in the wild. I'd have been so excited, I'd have forgotten I had my camera with me!

Ohhhh my gosh!! That's gotta' be an ungainly courtship. (We recently stayed in Maine for a while and saw nary a Moose. Wonder why we thought we had to travel out of the Pacific NW ;>).... it WAS beautiful and we had a great time though.
