Surprise Encounter
by Gord Barter (Gord)

Algonquin Park, Ontario

Photographer Notes:
We were having a walk in the park and came across this Cow Moose, she had yet to pin her ears back, but when she did we knew it was time to go!

Amazing capture especially considering the short reaction time you had to take this photo! Wonderful exposure against the snow with a powerful stance by the Moose! Big congratulations on your win today!
