Moose Video - Leominster State Forest

With the degradation that happens when I upload video, this already pretty grainy sequence will probably be worthless. Look for the dark thing a little left of center. But anyway, I came across a moose eating buds in the morning on a bit of trail in the Leominster woods. Got the camera going and took some kind of video. I was upwind and the moose spotted me a moment or so after I spotted it; so I was trying not to move and watch with my eyes while also filming. I did not dare activate the zoom (now I wish I had) fearing the mechanical sound would scare it off.

Later back at my car, I ran into a water department official, told him about the moose, and learned there were three bears in the area, as well.
