A bull caribou looking straight into the cameraA beautiful, awesome, photograph of a bull caribou, with magnificent velvet antlers, looking straight at the camera. Velvet is the name given to the hairy skin that covers the antlers as they grow. Most bull caribou shed their velvet in early September, indicating the arrival of the breeding season, or "Rut".
A wonderful National Geographic photo taken by Michael S. Quinton, at Denali National Park, Alaska.
Featured here on a custom photo postcard.
