My own personal favorite came in at #9, “A Moose and Her Calf”.  I was standing at my kitchen window early one morning last March and I saw the moose standing at the end of my driveway.  I dashed for my camera and by the time I got back with it, she had moved into the back yard, and it was then that I saw that she was accompanied by her calf.  Since my deck is well above the level of the yard, I was able to stand on the deck and take video of them without disturbing them.  It was a wonderful moment for me and I’m so glad I was able to capture it.
