Squaw Creek Bald Eagles, Part 2

In this second, and final post of the Squaw Creek Bald Eagles, I am sharing some flight shots of the eagles at the refuge. Flight shots are always at the top of my list of “To Do” things when photographing birds, so I’m always looking for in-flight possibilities. I saw this adult during my first […]

Squaw Creek Bald Eagles, Part 1

Today’s post includes some bald eagle images I made while at Squaw Creek NWR, photographing the Trumpeter Swans. Squaw Creek is know for the migrating waterfowl counts; Snow Geese numbers often reach 500,000 or more during November/early December. And with the increased waterfowl counts, comes the migrating Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus):     Immature Bald […]

Pack Creek, Part 3

We awoke on Day 3 of the workshop, still anchored in Pack Creek Bay. Scanning the shoreline, we were not only able to see a few brown bears working the shoreline, but there was an eerie look to the landscape … fog was slowly moving through the area:         Then, we saw […]

LeConte Glacier, Part 1

Last night, I spoke with Dolphin Charters, the company that is running the Alaska Photo Workshop that I’ll be leading in a few weeks. One of the things they told me was that the ice at LeConte Glacier, one of our stops, is very good this year. That was good news … the last time […]

Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On!

Today’s post is about another interesting area, not far from Anan Creek (the subject of my last 4 posts). The area I’m referring to is “Shakes Lake”. Before we get into the images, let me explain a bit of history regarding the “Shakes” name, which is common around the Wrangell, Alaska area. The title of […]

Anan Creek’s Other Wildlife

In the last 3 posts, I have highlighted our last trip to Anan Creek, located along Alaska’s Inside Passage. This black bear sanctuary sees a lot of visitors, all focused on the Black Bear (Ursus americanus). But there are other wildlife that can sometimes be spotted while hiking the trail back to the observatory. One […]

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 […]

“Warp Speed, Mr. Sulu”

No, this is not a post about Star Trek, but does seemingly encompass a time warp! Images in this post are from a trip to the Chilkat River Valley, outside Haines, Alaska. The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) featured in this post seems to be “stuck in a time warp”. Bald eagles usually don’t develop their white heads and tails […]

“What Did One Eagle Say to the Other Eagle?”

… “I’m going fishing!” During the past couple of weeks, the Missouri weather has been cold. Coupled with decreased wildlife activity, not much to photograph. So I’ve been doing a lot of image editing from the past few years, trying to make myself get rid of those images that are not of high quality, but have a […]
