Adirondack Moose Caught On Candid Camera

It seems that photos of moose are becoming more common with the return of these magnificent creatures to the Adirondacks.

Last week, Jeff Nadler, a professional photographer, sent us a shot of a young moose he took near Great Sacandaga Lake in the southern Adirondacks.

Today I’m sharing a photo of another young moose taken by a trail camera near Otter Lake in the southwestern Adirondacks.

Joshua Bader set up two trail cameras just a few weeks ago on his property at a “pinch point” between a pond and a big marsh. Evidently, it’s a busy pathway for wildlife, as he already has photos of the moose and a black bear.

The moose photo was taken July 21. When Bader first glanced at the photo, he assumed it was a deer. Then he zoomed in.

“I’m like, ‘Holy cow! It’s a moose!’”

The black bear photo was taken the day before.
