I arrived in Denali National Park to find the fall colors near peak conditions. If you've never been to Denali then it's hard to fathom, but really and truly the entire park is full of vibrant color from the many miles and acres of Fireweed.

We spotted this big fella, aka Mr. Moose, taking a nap about 100 yards off the road. We setup and waited, and waited, and waited and about two hours later he finally woke up, stood and we took our shots.

He was so far out I had to use my Canon 800mm with a Canon 7D to put me at 1280mm and get a full frame capture.
