Two Cow Moose

Two Cow Moose
Or is it Mooses? Whatever you call two of them they were photographed in the area of Bonaparte Lake in eastern Washington. They were very wary and when we started to take pictures they quickly disappeared. They are the largest animals in the deer family and the second largest mammal in North America, second only to the bison. These are the subspecies known as Alces alces shirasi, the smallest of all the subspecies in North America

LOL -- for some suggestions how to call those two beauties correctly try: en.wiktionary.org/wiki/moose
I quite like the NA variant Mosinee. As label for their professional model business of course, not for all the common moose :D
