Royale Moose: the story behind our epic cover photo
Posted on: July 27, 2017

Sara Simma was kind enough to provide Infosuperior with the cover photo for the August 1st newsletter (above).

It’s an amazing shot. Look close and you can see the light on the face of the moose. Wildlife photos are sometimes taken under difficult circumstances, often on the fly. This is stunningly clear photo of the moose. Sara explains more about the photo in the second paragraph below.

Here’s what Sara wrote to InfoSuperior…

 I grew up in rural Minnesota and spent lots of time camping, hiking, and exploring in the outdoors. Although I’m a city-dweller now, I feel most at home when I’m in the woods. Taking photos is also a passion and I appreciate how hiking with my camera encourages me to slow down, observe and learn about the plants, animals and landscapes I encounter. 

 One of my favorite regions to hike and photograph is Minnesota’s north shore of Lake Superior. In July, I got to venture a bit further and spent a week on Isle Royale. I was thrilled to find an abundance of wildflowers like lady’s slipper, bunchberry and pitcher plants in bloom. However, the highlight of the trip was observing a male moose in Washington Creek early on the last morning of my trip. I hope I have a chance to return to the park someday to experience more of what it has to offer.
