I saw both moose and horses at my way back to the cottage on Thursday night. Moose is not easy to see during daylight as they feed in the forest. When sun sets they often head to fields, as also on Thursday night.
Horses in a mist
The first stop on our way to the cottage was these beautiful horses in a mist. If you are following my blog, you may already have noticed that I am fond of misty mornings and nights (Mysterious misty lake, Misty mornings in May).
Moose mum in a fireweed field
I have admired a beautiful fireweed field couple of times when driving pass it. On Thursday there was a good reason to stop and take a photo as middle in the field was standing a moose. Actually she had calf with her, but the calf was so small that I could only see its ears.
On the other side of the fireweed field were two horses in a pen. I assume the russet horse is a Finnish horse.
Moose couple crossing a road
After nice photo shooting, we continued our drive and suddenly I saw two moose approaching the road. Moose couple crossed the road and continued their way to the wheat fields. By the way, I have seen couple of years ago three moose crossing road at the same place, but luckily now I had camera with me.
Where can you see Moose?
While walking in a Finnish forest you might suddenly be surprised to see or hear a Moose crashing off through the vegetation. Finland’s vast forests are home to around 100 000 Moose (also known in Europe as elks).
Moose are quite seldom seen as they shelter in dense forest during the daytime. They are easiest to spot when they venture out of the trees to graze on fields in the twilight hours around dawn and dusk (Visit Finland).
Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you have enjoyed my post of moose and horses.
