Fun Friday: A Macro Lens for Moose Photography?

While editing images on my external hard drive the other day, I found some moose photos that I made in 2006 in Baxter State Park, Maine. Today’s “Fun Friday” post shows you don’t really need a good telephoto lens to make nice moose images … a good macro lens will work just as well!

And just how close can you get to moose here? This next image will give you a good idea:

Cow Moose


I was with a small group of photographers, photographing a cow moose that was reasonably close to us. Without warning, she walked over to the boardwalk we were photographing from and began going down the line, sniffing all the big lenses on the tripods! For a moment, I almost wished for my macro lens (which I left at home, never dreaming I could use it for photographing moose!).

I spent 5 days photographing moose in Baxter State Park during this trip, which happened several years before I began my photo blog. So, I will publish more moose images in some upcoming blog posts.
