Hi Mel,
I have never seen a Moose this far south before let alone one swimming!
Can you do anything to bring it closer like you did with the Woodpecker?

TTFN.

Hi Mel,
Yes I did take the pictures on the 1 April 2010 at 06:45 and it wasn't an April fools joke!!
At least I don't think it was someone dressed up as a moose!
Pam and I were sitting in our downstairs living room having a cup of tea, I was facing the lake when I saw it come into view. So I got the camera, went to the upstairs living / sitting room and took the pictures. I think it was heading across to what is known here as the "Big Island", actual name, Boyd Island. I do know that Moose are up in Kinmount a small town 30  kilometers north of here as I have seen a couple when I was renovating an old lodge up on Galway road, Kinmount. There was this bloody great Moose, walking along the middle of the road in front of me, unconcerned that I was there, it walked about 200 meters, then took of into the bush. I have asked around but nobody has seen one this far south.
I do know  that there are wolves on Boyd island as a few years ago, on Christmas Day, we saw two very large wolves come across from the island, on the ice, one went east, down the lake and the other came up on our shore and walked right past our dining room window. I didn't have a digital camera then hence no pictures. It was a magnificent animal! Well fed!
Thanks for doing your best with the picture.
 
Hope you are all well.
 
Keep smiling, Ernie
Both - sorry three - OK.  Trust you Pam & Family are OK, Chloe, June & Mel
