Thus the moose has a prehistory and a history in this region plus a natural history as well. This seminar, by distinguishing biological realities from cultural perceptions, will clarify both the taxonomic relatedness and the ecological context of the moose as a species.

Truly great wildlife images “connect” with a viewer and elicit a variety of emotional reactions — humor, joy, excitement, reverence, apprehension, a sense of wonder, and much more. Creating a wildlife photograph with the power to “connect” is the result of a unique combination of skills, including knowledge of animal behavior and habits, understanding photographic equipment and technique, a bit of woodsmanship, and a large portion of patience, practice and perseverance. This course will introduce beginning and intermediate photographers to methods, equipment and techniques they should consider to further their understanding, development and enjoyment as wildlife photographers.
