A moose photo special; with (my) pants down!

All photos by Jonathan Schechter at Superior Provincial Park, Ontario 

In the wild-lands of northern Ontario the folks at Superior Provincial Park offered an open-air
 toilet  at an isolated trailhead where one can sit and attend to their business and
 enjoy the wonders of wild nature.
  My camera was with me; but was not about to be used. 
 I thought I was alone. 

I was not.


And this is where I sat and took in the scenery and  bird song and admired tiny spotted trout lilies
  blooming  near my feet in the shadows of the spruce before setting out on a six mile solo hike.
. A noise caught my attention from the brush in the boreal forest habitat. 
Something was moving. 
And then I saw it about 100 feet away seconds before it saw me.


With my pants still dangling  I moved forward about 20 feet and managed one quick photo. 
The moose turned and was gone in a thunderous crash.
 Life on the latrine does not get any better than this!

Slade,

Superior is beautiful in every sense of the word, full of raw radiance and true wildness. Jonathan
