A hungry moose turns an aspen sapling into a quick snack.
Behind the lens.
After photographing stars overnight, we wandered into Glacier Park's Many Glacier valley to watch the sunrise. No one else was up yet, except for this moose. She watched us watch her as she browsed her way through a patch of aspen saplings.
This is a good example of rim lighting, with low-angle light coming in from behind. I like this kind of lighting so much that I seldom even attempt photographs in straight-up daylight. The first and last hours of the day are almost always the best for photography.
