Love to get those moose shots. Such a huge awkward creature.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

1.I'm not that crazy about the B&W tree picture. It's too busy for B&W. Makes my eyes bug out.
2.Something is off with the 2nd B&W. Not sure what. Maybe it that the moose is too far away. Almost looks like the image is infrared, which could be the reason I don't like it...and the same reason for the first image.
3. nice
4. I like it, except for the tree on the left side. I understand when it comes with wildlife, its best not to move otherwise you will scare it off and loose the shot altogether, but maybe you could have zoom past that tree and just move a tad to take that tree out.

Thanks Crystal for the input, much appreciated. As far as the moose, I was already zoomed in as far as I could go at 300mm. She was pretty big and frightened by already 3 cars and flashes behind me. She kept watching me getting closer.. I was already too close at that point anyway. Had she decided to bolt at me I wouldn't of had time to get back to my car. When it comes to wildlife, it's a challenge; if I had a 600mm getting that tree out of the way wouldn't have been a problem and I wouldn't have had to get so close to her. So I had to get what I could get :)

Sweet shots, I love them all. She's definately checking you out, hopefully I'll be seeing some Moose next week too. :)
