Two young cubs watch on as a mom drops the remains of a clam she just dug up. The mom eats most of them, but every now and then leaves one for one of the cubs.

I don’t know if there is anything more challenging then photographing a puffin in flight! But it is sure fun! These are from last week – I’m back out there today!

The folks who were willing to wade through the maze of testing and other covid requirements were sure awarded with an absolutely amazing trip! Three sows appeared with spring cubs, including our favorite Crimp who has triplets this year! We saw lots of nursing, cubs playing, clam digging, even a wolf and fox, it was incredible. Plus, were basically the only ones in the fields the whole time. Looks like 2020 will be a year to remember in Alaska.
