These two tufted puffin engaged in a crazy, extended battle where at times one would hold the other under water. I have never seen anything like it! It must have gone on for minutes. Kodiak Island, Alaska.

I’m home from an amazing Katmai Bear photo Tour. We had amazing weather the whole week, and saw over 50 bears! In our first bay, Geographic Harbor, we had 10 spring cubs! Two sets of triplets, and two sets of twins. Also on the trip we saw a wolf, fox, fin and humpback whales, and more eagles, otters and puffin then we could count. All that, and we only saw one other tour boat and one other plane during the whole time on the Katmai Coast.
