I have a few of these two cubs and their mom climbing on this bear carving – very cute!
On my bear tours we mostly focus on bears, but also spend time with other wildlife as well – this was from last week’s trip and has to be the most cooperative sea otter I have ever photographed!
How is this for an awesome place to spend the night and bust out the kayaks! This was our anchorage on Sunday Night.
I got home late last night after a couple of wonderful weeks of travel! Great to be home, now I need to take care of that jungle I used to call a lawn.
Back for one night after another wonderful bear tour! These two cute cubs were from early the first morning – I have lots to share, but off to Prince William Sound.
I’m off this morning to lead another Alaska Bear photo Tour! Seeing new and old friends, and being close to big, beautiful brown bears always makes this one of the highlights on my summer! When I’m done with the bear trip, I’m off the Prince William Sound to guide a trip on the Discovery, then make a quick trip to Juneau, so I might not have a chance to post much until early July – but then hopefully I’ll have a lot to share!!
A muskox in the Alaska Arctic – see, I did photograph more than just birds while up there!
A Pacific Loon from my trip to the Arctic. I have seen these guys in the past, but have never had an opportunity to photograph them – another really beautiful animal!
Spectacled Eider – another beautiful new bird for me from last weeks trip to the Arctic.
You can see these beautiful ducks in Seward during the winter, but I have never been able to get close to one until last week. At first I was disappointed he turned away from me before doing a wing flap, that is until I saw the wonderful patterns on his back!
Home from just over a week of traveling across the huge state of Alaska. It was a great trip! At one point at the top of Atigun Pass, we saw temps in the mid 20’s, with blowing snow and a half a foot of snow on the ground – and yet, later on we also saw temps in the mid 80’s!
It is great to have made it to the Arctic Coast – the wildlife is amazing! We have had a range of weather, including a half of foot of snow and blowing snow in the Brooks Range. But, with the sun up 24 hours a day, and when the light is right, it is amazing. We didn’t get to bed last night until 4:00 a.m.
