Today’s post is a somewhat similar situation … a younger black bear (probably 2-3 years old) had just caught a salmon in Anan Creek:     After catching […]

He’s Baaaa…aaack!

Sorry for the excessive delay in getting new blog posts out, but between not having reliable internet service available, being in wilderness areas where internet is unheard of, and just being too darned busy making images, I just wasn’t able to pull off keeping up with my posts. But I am now back home, having […]

Anan Creek, Alaska

We’re still in the extreme heat wave here, with temperatures daily in the 100-105F range. Adding in the humidity factor, our comfort index has been registering between 103-115F … not too conducive for outdoor photography! Not only is it uncomfortable for me, but the wildlife activity slows to a crawl also. And kayaking conditions are […]

Barnacles and Bears

Ok, so what do barnacles and bears have in common? Scientific and journalistic interest for one thing. It seems that I have been requested 3 times over the past month, for permission to publish a couple of images I made in Alaska.
