Who would have thought a year and a half ago that I would be celebrating my birthday in Algonquin Park moose viewing? It was a perfect day. As we drove into the park we saw 4 moose at different locations along Hwy 60. Each time I got out of the car with such excitement to photograph them. They are huge creatures! They often come out of the bush to drink the salted water from the ditches along the highway and to escape the blackflies. Today there are no blackflies! Thank goodness. Last year it was very difficult taking photos of moose since I spent most of my time swatting the flies away. I have a bug jacket but don't like to wear it when I'm photographing as it really obstructs the view. April is the best time to view as there are no blackflies yet. If I wait until mid May...thats when I'm asking for trouble. Well my mission was to see moose.....mission accomplished! Plus....an added birthday present....I got my cards into the Algonquin Visitor's Centre Bookstore today. Overall a great birthday!
