Rutting Moose at sunset

Description:
For this photo I headed out to Powerline Pass where the Moose are rutting in large numbers during the fall. I positioned myself for this shot, however my photography fun was cut short as both of these bull moose along with another one just outside the frame turned their attention towards me. I did not want to stick around to see how interested they were in me as I was already as close as my comfort level would allow. Still a healthy distance but I didn't want that distance to be any shorter not to mention that the sun was setting fast and I had at least a mile to hike out with plenty of other moose still along the trail.
