Leaving the Jago: Photos

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A recently fledged American Golden-Plover is curious about the photographer. Soon this young plover will leave the dry tundra along the river bluffs and make one of the longest journeys of any shorebird, flying thousands of miles to the Argentine Pampas in South America. Photo by Heather Craig.

A blonde grizzly catches the scent of a caribou and calf. The bear jumped down the bluff, swam the river, and chased the caribou downstream for about a kilometer, crossing the river twice more. The caribou had a good head start and the bear eventually gave up, but it was impressive to see how fast they can move. Photos by Shiloh Schulte (left) and Eddie Corp (right).
