The day's last light illuminates the boats and tents of narwhal hunters on Greenland's Kangerluk Fjord. Narwhals come to Greenland's fjords in July and August to calve and feed. Landing these elusive tusked whales presents extreme dangers for Greenlanders, whose low-riding kayaks can easily capsize in the process.
