    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.

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

    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.

    Thanks! It's an amazing amazing place and I highly recommend going if you get the chance! The wildlife is amazing and the scenery spectacular.

    I will eventually get around to the other pics, I promise! My computer decided it's out of memory so I have to move over a bunch of crap to my external before I can upload the rest of the pics.
