This raven was flying alongside the patrol truck and my camera caught him by aiming from my lap and guessing as to him being in the venter of the frame. The ravens would land on the hoods of the big trucks and if the driver placed a sandwich or cookie on the dash they would walk across the hood and look in through the windshield at the morsel they weren't SUPPOSED to have! The trucks were restricted to 25 or 30 km/h so it wasn't hard for the ravens to preform on the hoods while the trucks were moving.
This caribou was walking through fairly deep snow on a beautiful sunny day and the trees around it were coated in a very thick layer of frost that was gone a week or two later after a day or two of wind. The largest herds of caribou I saw in the 2006 season was about 130 animals and I was in the southernmost camp in 2006 (Dome Lake Camp). The first year (2005) I was in the northermost camp (LacDeGras Road Camp).
The ptarmigan changes colors from summer to winter and often one would come around a bend on a portage and see several white "lumps" on the road and instinctively think it was lumps of snow and at the last second the "lumps" would be transformed into ptarmigan and fly off leaving me to look in the mirror thinking I MUST have hit one but that was never the case. On a sunny day they would stand out so beautifully as they sat on the dark limbs of the birch trees or evergreens.
