Default Check out this cooler

http://aicphotography.blogspot.com/2...m-dancing.html

Only have 10Gb per-month here so I can only post these images once and don't want to use up too much with links. When I get a handle on my internet use there will be more direct posts.

Great series, Ira!
One of the nicest bonus of this forum is the different cultures we can experience.
Thank you for sharing.

Great shots!

As morbid as it sounds, I want to see more of that wolf carcass, looks really interesting.

Be careful what you wish for. This was shot with the fisheye zoom and the built in flash so the quality is not great.

Very interesting shots - had to think about the advantages of the community cooler, but it sure makes sense. At first I couldn't figure out why someone would keep a dead wolf, but seeing the close-up, it's obviously been skinned and I can imagine all kind of uses for the fur. But I still can't quite figure out why they would keep the rest of the carcass - what else do they use? The dance pictures call out for video capability!

Right now I think you are so lucky to have taken the opportunity to go there. But somehow I suspect I wouldn't think that in the middle of January...

A different view of another way of life. Interesting. Looking forward to more in the future.

Due to a spike in the wolf population, caribou are on a decline. As a result there is a bounty paid for SOME wolves (no there is no effort to eliminate a key predator, just a minor culling to ease the pressure on the caribou). So this wolf carcass has financial value besides the skin.

BTW Wolf and coyote are used to trim hoods on parkas because they break the wind effectively without blocking your vision.

Oh and yes, I do have an old camcorder on the way to capture the action. Perhaps a KX is in my future.
