Caribou on the Runway
Canon 60D, Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3
1/1250 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200
This is one of the many caribou that have been walking through camp. This one is walking down a gravel runway at an abandoned air force site. This was taken early in the summer, so the antlers aren’t very impressive yet. They grow a new set every year and every year the old ones fall off. This is actually how you can tell the difference between antlers and horns. Antlers fall off and grow back, horns don’t. Anyway, as the antlers at the time of posting this have grown considerably. I just need a chance to get some shots of them now.
