I just completed two, back-to-back workshops in Rocky Mountain National Park . . . Colorado Fall Wildlife and Wildlife & Photoshop.
My group and I were at Sprague Lake early one morning during my Fall Wildlife workshop when we encountered this scene. Although I have observed elk on numerous occasions at this location, moose are rare at Sprague Lake. The "icing-on-the-cake" for us was the gold and yellow fall colors that clothed the nearby mountainsides reflecting on the waters of the lake as the young bull moose fed on vegetation for almost an hour. Talk about photo opps!
I never call it luck when it all comes together as it did for my group and I that morning. It's was simply one of Nature's very special gifts.
