Wash Between The Toes  

When photographing bears, and you come upon a scene such as this one, you want to be able to photograph the bear doing what he or she is doing. You want to be able to photograph them in their natural state doing what they naturally do. You also want to be able to encourage them in doing what they do naturally. In order to encourage them, you have to stay far enough away, that you don't disturb him or her from doing what they are doing, but yet get as close as you can to get the perfect shot. In this image and all wildlife images that I take, that's what I try to do.

All Mine!!! 

Often, when I'm out photographing bears here in Alaska, long lens or not ….. some bears just have this attitude, that they don't like to be bothered when eating …. Then again, I thank God I have my long lenses.

Portage Valley Glacier Lake  

In Alaska, there is a place called Portage Valley Glacier Lake, or sometimes just called Portage Valley. It sets about 70 miles south of Anchorage on Seward Hyway. Right around June is the best time for images like this, because of the atmosphere around the lake and cold weather that glaciers make. This image was taken early in the morning. Turned out better than I could have imagined.

Damn Lucky 

Eagles to me are like bears in some aspects. Except for the breeding period and rearing of their young, eagles for the most part loners. Bears are loners except for the breeding period. Eagles do congregate with other eagles during certain time of year and certain areas of the world, like Haines Alaska, Vancouver British Columbia, and Kamchatka Russia. For their flying ability, they are, in my opinion, the most acrobatic and the most agile big predator bird in the air. Able to Handle, Adjust, and yes, even flip their quarry in mid air and catch it.

Interrupted 

I think I interrupted this black bear's meal as I came up on him to photograph. Luckily enough, he didn't bother to move as I was moving completely around him for different angled shots. I did get some very good shots of him as it turned out and I think I like this one the best.
