From earlier this month in the Inside Passage.
Another one from last week’s bear and whale photo tour.
Details: Canon 5D Mark 4, with a 100-400 lens at 400, 125th of a second at f/5.6. Shot using aperture priority with -2/3 of a stop compensation.
Home now after my second bear and whale trip and boy did it not disappoint! Incredible warm sunny weather that had about half the crew and passengers swimming one evening! Multiple groups of bubble-net feeding humpbacks, breaching humpbacks, and even orcas. However the highlight had to be Anan Creek Bear Observatory – that beautiful place gets better every year!
The green moss on the bank was crazy!

Just back from an awesome Alaska Bear and Whale Photo Tour! We visited one new place for me that had 15 spring brown bear cubs! I think we saw at least 10 of them. We also had two separate groups of bubble-net feeding humpbacks, breaching humpbacks, glaciers… I leave again in the morning, I sure hope this upcoming week is as good.
What’s up mom? It is interesting how even young cubs are very tuned in to their mom’s behavior.
