  1. They are all wonderful but I am drawn to the posture of the young caribou.

    • Thanks Lyle! He was posing for the camera, obviously. πŸ˜‰ I have a whole set of pictures of him in different poses, but didn’t want to post too many.. (It’s hard to choose a few pictures when you come back from vacation with ~1,000!)

      • It’s hard to choose sometimes but that falls into the good problem category.

  2. Camilla, these are absolutely stunning! The colors, the mountains, and the wildlife are breathtaking. ( I was also not getting e-mail notifications for two weeks,,, and this week they started back up again? I have no idea why…)

    • Thanks so much, sweet Wendy! πŸ™‚ I’m only getting about 30% of the email notifications I usually get. Hope it’s fixed soon! πŸ™‚

  5. Amazing photos!

  6. Your trip turned out to be a veuy good one as evidenced by all the great photos that you took. Love these as well. The caribou’s horns are so impressive. Gigantic!

    About the email. I don’t think some people are getting notified of my posts and I don’t get some of theirs either. The folks that I know have posted in th past- i just go looking for their posts so that I dont miss out on being a good follower. πŸ™‚ A few folks that have always commented did not on my last two posts. Granted my posts are less than stellar but even so most people commented anyhow. πŸ™‚

    • Yes, especially male Caribou antlers are huge! And heavy too! It’s so amazing to think they grow new antlers every year. In one of the pictures, you can see quite clearly how one of them has started to shed his antlers (the pink in them are blood vessels).
      I hope the email notification problem is fixed soon! πŸ™‚
      Thanks Yvonne!!

  9. Wow. The colors are amazing, the creatures are wild and rugged, and the scenery is simply stunning. Your shots are breathtakingly beautiful, Camilla. You certainly chose a great time of the year for your visit.

    • Thanks so much, Mike! I really was at the right place at the right time. πŸ˜€

      September 19, 2013 at 5:23 PM

  10. Beautiful series, Camilla! My personal favorites are #6 and #8. Great captures and beautiful scenery.
    And aren’t caribou interesting mammals?
    Great job!

    September 18, 2013 at 1:38 PM

    • Thanks so much, Stefano! I really appreciate it! I think #8 is my favourite too Caribou are definitely interesting, and I’m so glad I got to see some (we don’t have any over here).

  11. Oh my, these are incredible images – I love seeing the caribou roaming the rough and gorgeous colorful landscape. This is nature at its best.

    September 18, 2013 at 2:14 PM

    • Thanks so much, Mary! I absolutely agree – Nature at its best! πŸ™‚

      September 19, 2013 at 5:26 PM

  12. Looks like the Scandinavian reindeers in this season we have now. Nice.

    September 19, 2013 at 9:09 PM

    • Thanks Bente! Reindeer is a semi-domesticated Caribou, typically they’re smaller but otherwise the same I think!

      September 22, 2013 at 3:43 PM

  13. Inspired and pretty

    Great captures Calee, the last image is breathtaking ! πŸ™‚

  14. Can you ride moose? I think I’ve found my new ambition in life! Whats the plural for moose? Or is it just moose? Amazing shots again though!!

    October 23, 2013 at 4:26 PM

    • Thanks Aaron! I’ve asked myself that very question. Competing in show jumping would be a granted win, mooses (moose?) can jump really high! Plus, it’d be a very cool way to cruise around. πŸ˜‰

      October 23, 2013 at 5:58 PM

      • Excluding a giant mouse, mooses(?) (spell checker says it’s not a word) are the best way to travel!
        Could you imagine jumping over badly disguised jumps in competition on a moose!! gooosssshhh……..I feel a little day dream coming on…..

        October 23, 2013 at 6:06 PM

        • Would be the coolest equipage, no doubt! πŸ˜€

          October 23, 2013 at 6:09 PM

          • I don’t suppose you know of any moose trainers? Wherever you’re from in the world

            October 23, 2013 at 6:10 PM

            • I’m Swedish, but know no moose trainers.. I suspect it’s an autodidact art form! πŸ˜‰

              October 23, 2013 at 6:14 PM

              • Then I’ve got to find me a moose!! Phase one of Aaron moose competition domination begins now. That sounds wrong, but hey ho!! haha

                October 23, 2013 at 6:17 PM

                • Finding a moose is a good starting point!! Good luck πŸ˜€

                  October 23, 2013 at 6:23 PM

                  • There’s got to be at least 3 here in England, I’ll be fine!!
