This astounding one-of-a-kind photo of barrrenground caribou silhouetted by a veil of aurora borealis was taken by professional photographer David Olson during a autumn wildlife expedition to the northern Canadian mainland Arctic. A fulll moon behind the photographer cast the faint light that exposed the caribou and foreground, and made this photo possible.

During mid-August ever year, caribou lull from their migratory patterns and spread out to graze across the countryside in pairs & small groups to store essential winter fat and gather strength prepartory for the upcoming mating season in mid-October. Northern lights start becoming visible in Nunavik with their ghostly displays in mid-August, once darkness returns to the mainland sub-Arctic tundra.
