Arctic Tundra Muskoxen I

Caught this shot in between Deadhorse and Coldfoot, Alaska on foot with the 500mm.....


Muskoxen are native to the Arctic areas of Canada, Greenland, and Alaska. The Alaska population was wiped out in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century, but have since been reintroduced to Alaska.

They were close to extinction at one point, but have recovered after being protected from hunting.
