From the middle of a grassy patch at the edge of the lake, we lurked around this fella, not wanting to disrupt that refreshing drink. Or maybe he was looking for fish... who knows!? Either way, we snuck away after this without a glance coming our way. We turned the corner and onto the river home, only to be greeted by the largest moose we’d ever seen—high up on the river bank, looking down on us like a king. We were completely dominated by the moose and the moment, never touching our cameras.
Japari Park somehow reminds me of Jurassic Park, so I came up with this. This is the first picture I drew on a used Surface Pro 3 I got. Using a tablet with a screen is much easier, though it isn't as good with pressure sensitivity.
Лось. Имени пока нет. Кличут Сохатым. ⠀
❄️ Я хотела его одеть в уютные фланелевые брюки, свитерок со снежинкой и тёплые тапочки. Но этот парень наотрез отказался облачаться в домашнюю одежду. ⠀
💀 Суровый взгляд исподлобья не оставил мне шансов на сопротивление. Ну, а что? Как говорится, клиент всегда прав. Джинсы, значит джинсы. ⠀
А за джинсами кожаная косуха потянулась.
За ней - бандана с черепушками. ⠀
Но тут я не выдержала: Ну какая бандана? На Вашу рогатую голову, пардонте конечно, только павлово-посадский платок завязывать. Нет-нет, что Вы, я - не про узоры, как можно? Я - про размеры.
Согласился, но бандану всё-таки припрятал. ⠀
Ушёл. На полку. Постоял. Вернулся. Сказал, что сорочка нужна. Белая. ⠀
Вот такой красавец с характером вышел в свет. Встречайте. ⠀
23 см. Вискоза. Опилки. Диски-шплинты. Сшит по курсу @tina_pimenova. В приятной виртуальной компании. Потому, видать, я и решила его одомашнить. Но природа взяла своё - Лось свободолюбив и своенравен. ⠀
🏠 А потому свободен. Свободен выбирать новый дом.
Thank you so much to everyone that has donated since we posted the news of our new calf and her journey. We so appreciate the support!
Here’s our newest moose calf being assessed by our awesome Rehabilitation Manager, Erin. We’re so lucky to have an amazing staff team at AIWC, and we couldn’t do what we do without our army of equally awesome volunteers. Learn more and apply to volunteer for our next recruitment period, ending Aug 31, on our website: aiwc.ca

It’s been over three months since seeing Lovey the Moose and I miss her very much. This video was taken behind my house last spring while she was pregnant. People sometimes ask what’s the longest I’ve gone without seeing Lovey and it’s about a year. During this time she disappears into the wilderness and I’m left to wonder if I will ever see my friend again. On this day Lovey saw me below her on the hill and immediately came for an affectionate greeting. I’m filming from my knees which allows a better look at Lovey’s immense size, but clearly causes her some concern about my condition. Her hooves are very sharp and could do great damage, but it’s obvious from Lovey’s eyes that she has only warm feelings for me. Lovey has incredibly expressive eyes that are a window into her thoughts and intentions. When Lovey is close to me you can see the caring and sensitivity in her expression that comes from years of warm friendship. I love Lovey very much and know that despite her absence she cares for me too. Your support during this time has been very uplifting, and I’m beyond grateful for the caring shown for Lovey by people all over the world. Lovey is a fully wild animal who has formed a unique and special bond with me from the day she was born. It’s is not possible to achieve this reaction from a strange moose, and to try would be putting yourself and the moose in extreme danger. Please never approach one in the wild. Hello and good day from Alaska! 🤗
When filming for a wildlife programme, having shots where animals enter the frame is often very useful for the editing. In this situation with a nice big bull moose, it would have been very easy to keep the camera pointed at the animal. You’ll notice as the moose starts to walk, instead of holding the shot, I whip pan the camera to the right and then hold on an empty frame, letting the animal walk into frame before continuing to pan to the right. This is a really simple technique to get a shot that introduces a character or starts a scene. Try doing it the next time you see a wild animal or pet on the move! To see this moose in action, check out my new online series, ‘Wild_Life: The Big Freeze’ at natgeo.com/wildlife or on National Geographic Youtube. #moose#arctic#snow#wild_life #wildlife#filmmaking
