It was an awesome scene and amazing to know this is just what they instinctively do.
Watertown, SD (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
International award-winning wildlife artist, Joshua Spies, recently released his newest painting, "Caribou Migration."
According to the artist, the motivation for this painting came from a hunting trip in Yukon Territory, Canada, in 2010.
"This is something we saw very close to our camp while hunting near the Black Stone River," Spies said. "It was an awesome scene and amazing to know this is just what they instinctively do."
The hunting trip which inspired this painting was featured on the Sportsman Channel's "The Word of Sports Afield."
