Default A small Sampling of Alaska- humpback whales, eagles, bear

Whew... way too many pics to get them all up tonight, but here's a few for now. I'll work on the rest and get some others up of the boat, scenery, more animals, etc.

Group of seals relaxing in Tracy Arm Fjord



Humpback Whale along the coast



Bald Eagles on Ice





Check this out. Each dot is a bald eagle.



Blown up:


Another Humpback. This isn't cropped at all, he was that close to us.





And a couple more

Black Bear eating dandelions. These also weren't cropped at all but luckily we were in a car and not this close to a bear again this year without a barrier.









After two summers spending time in Alaska, it's becoming one of my absolute favorite places. That place is just... mystical.

those are great! I love the flukes I would like to get shots like that. I so want to go there again. The last time I went I took no pictures...what a waste.

wow--if this is a tease of pictures--I can't wait to see more! I know I am in awe of a single bald eagle when I catch a glimpse around here--can't imagine all of them like that!

Sometime I need to go through and scan the pictures I took from my whale watching trip years ago...I just love whales.

You are so lucky to have been twice!

I'm totally jealous. I want to go to Alaska really badly, more for the wildlife photo ops than anything.
