This is Shoshone. He is the moose king of the Tetons. Although he is the biggest and baddest bull moose in Teton County he is a gentle giant that will listen to the moose whisperers.
I was able to spend some quality alone time with this big boy before the hordes of photographers descended on his kingdom. Funny, I had actually asked him to pose with the mountains and the fall colors and he actually got up from his slumber and posed before running off a smaller bull moose in the vicinity. He listened and gave me a few seconds. 🙂
And this is my favorite photo of him that I took.
