Moose at Riding Mountain NP, Canada

We had not driven far down the road when we spotted a moose with monstrous chocolate-coloured horns, standing among the trees at the side of the road. Moose are such curious-looking creatures with their ungainly bodies and legs and their bulbous wine-bibbers' noses They always look to me as though they have been made up of discarded bits from several creatures. This animal gazed at us lugubriously for a few minutes, twisting his ears; and then, blowing out two great clouds of steam from his balloon-like nose, he moved off heavily through the trees.
