Brown Bear

This picture was taken on a penninsula off Lynn Canal outside of Juneau by someone Mike works with.
I understand you don't want to mess with the Brown Bears. They are sure cute to look at, but they can be very hazardous to your health!!!

Humpback Surprise

This photo was taken in Berner's Bay by one of Mike's co-workers.
Isn't this amazing!
These whales are bubble feeding. They go under the schools of fish and make bubbles confusing the fish and then they dive up with their mouths wide open ready for a nice snack.
Wonder what the guy in the kayak is thinking?

These whales are bubble feeding on the small fish that ae running up the streams to reproduce. The whales dive under the schools and blow bubbles to confuse the fish. When they are good and confuse they dive through them with their mouths wide open.

Come visit us in Alaska!!!
