Looking for One Good Thing

if you look for small things that make you happy
sometimes, you'll be rewarded 
with something really BIG

  1. Such a contrast between the two. I'm not sure I would care to see that moose up close and personal, I understand they can be very unpredictable.

  2. Sometimes, surprises come in big packages!

    The squirrel's eyes have its curiosity.

  10. I agree with Kathy, that moose looks healthy. I guess we are used to ratty east coast moose!

    Didn't nature give you a great pairing this time?

  11. Well I am thinking I would not mind being that close to a squirrel... but that moose- tell me you had a telephoto lens. Lovely thoughts and photos.

  12. my jaw dropped when I scrolled down and saw that...MOOSE! what a hilarious looking creature. love those ears and that snout, and even his stance. that's a gorgeous, sleek coat he's wearing too. but not to be outdone, the tiny squirrel is adorable too. I love the light in that photo. and look at you - all that snow! I'm thinking about the long white wait...(I haven't forgotten nor will I, it's too cool!)
    happy weekend to you Barb.
