Moose In Michigan

Not one, but two ! Truly amazing ! These animals were photographed just north of the Wisconsin border on a highway near Marenisco , MI

Once in awhile there is an opportunity to take in a piece of nature that you may never see. In these days of unrest and turmoil it is great to see that Mother Nature can still produce some wondrous beauty.

The odds of seeing an albino moose are astronomical and to see this in the upper peninsula of Michigan , near Wisconsin , is even greater than astronomical. To see two of them together is nearly impossible. 

We wanted to share these photos with as many people as possible because you will probably never have a chance to see this rare sight again. 

This is a really special treat!

My brother "Bill" in West Virginia passed this on to me today. Hope you enjoy the photos & short story.

Wow! Absolutely amazing photos.  Your brother was very lucky to have seen and photographed these 2 albino moose. He was in the right place at the right time! Thanks for sharing.

Chris, I don't think I've ever seen an albino moose.  When I get back to my home in northern Illinois I might take a long weekend up to northern Wisconsin or Michigan.

Chris - I've never seen a Moose in the wild, let alone a white one or two.  Fascinating pictures!

Hi Michael,

They are amazing photos!  When I was 10, my father was atationed in Fairbanks, Alaska & we lived there for several years.  Moose use to come up to our windows and look in!  That was a quite an experience and something you just don't forget!  They are huge creatures!  Thanks for visiting!

The albino moose would be hidden in the snow, no problem-but summer would be a different story! They are magnificent and to be admired...from a distance of course! Thanks for sharing that Chris!
