Sunrise and moose

When I left my first account this morning I looked to the east and saw the sky on fire. Now my mission was to find a place to break out the camera without obstacles like light poles and telephone wires and stuff in the way of the pix's. I made it to Frontage Road and about 70th before I had what I thought was a good place to take some shots. I was a little closer than I would like, but OK.

So I'm taking a few shots and mumbling under my breath about street lights and background noise and stuff when I hear a grunt. I drop the camera from in front of my face and guess who's 10 feet right in front of me.

Excuse the pictures, I didn't have time to make adjustments. I was all set up for distant landscapes and stuff. He looked at me for a second or two longer and then headed on down the road.

From there it was coffee and danish time.

What a beautiful sky shot, dave. It's good that you went with your instinct to take a shot without any interference. You got to have a close encounter with a very cute moose!

What a beautiful sunrise, Dave. The moose was a bonus, I think.

So when they grunt at you is it more in surprise or does it mean, "excuse me sir, you're in my way!" and you need to get back to your car in a quick hurry??
