Caribou Photos- Arctic Alaska

What could be more iconic than caribou swimming an arctic river? Here are a couple of images from Dave Shaw and Cameron Baird respectively. Dave’s image at top is from the Noatak River in Gates of the Arctic National Park taken this August. Cameron’s photo is from the Kongakut River in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in June. Though the motion and the numbers from the June photo are impressive, I also love the rich coat and heavy antlers of the maturing bull in the fall.
