Call of the Wild

Not far from where I live in Rapid City is the Call of the Wild free museum and tourist information center. It is located just off Interstate 90 and perfectly located for travelers headed to see Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park.

I finally got a chance to spend a little time photographing some of the beautiful animals they have on display. Here are some of my favorite shots. I do like that many of the animals have been posed as if in action.

I was really drawn to how alive the animals eyes looked. I even shared a couple extreme eye close ups Here. It may be small as museums go, but it certainly has a good selection of wildlife and is worth a stop if you are in the area.

Wow! My daughter would love that. We have a Cabella's nearby and my daughter loves the taxidermy displays.

I think I've been there, when I was a child.

I didn't know about the Call of the Wild Museum. I'll have to visit the next time I'm in Rapid. Great phot of the animals. Especially like the ones of their eyes.
