I usually concentrate on eyes when photographing but when watching and waiting the ears are my markers for impending action or movement. Clearly alert ears pointing toward you means you have been "busted" and the animal is about to leave. In this case it is totally focussed on someone else, probably a door slamming. When away from the road this moose responded to car doors and people talking a quarter mile away. Can you imagine what the sound of a sneeze feels like?
