    One of the most common animals up here (elk (moose for you Americans) and bear are at least more shy and hence harder to capture).

    ... not well composed, not well exposed and not special in anyway ... just to share (comments still welcome though ;) )

    Taken this weekend near Kvikkjokk, Lapland.

    Mid-jump!
    And losing his winter coat.
    He looks a bit straggly like this.
    Nice one!

    "Kwikkjokk" - I am sure my dad and brother have been there once before, back in the seventies, when they hiked through Laponia.

    Well, for a "snapshot" it's still really good. His front legs show movement but the rest of him is nice and crisp. It doesn't look like he was going to wait around for you to dial in the perfect exposure, haha.
