Caribou Near Savage River

Location: Denali National Park, Alaska
Date: 23 August 2002
Camera: Pentax ZX-50
Normally if you approach an animal too closely it will run away, so I found that it was better to watch the animals from a distance, figure out which direction they were moving in, and then wait patiently along the path which they were taking. In this case it took about an hour, but this bull eventually grazed to within fifty feet of me.
