Alaskan Wildlife

My friend Tamra is leaving for a cruise to Alaska this week. I hope she gets to see lots of Alaskan Wildlife as we did when we sailed on Silverea’s Silver Shadow in 2004. We loved watching bears grab salmon from the stream and eat them, leaving leftovers for the bald eagles near Wrangell. July is a great time to visit Alaska.

Silent teamwork: Bears grabbed salmon from the rushing stream, while Bald Eagles waited nearby for their turn to feed.

Whales were bobbing and breaching as well near Juneau, and in Sitka, we observed some colorful starfish.

As for me, I’ll be departing for Iceland this week, where I hope to photograph the Puffins as well as many waterfalls and volcanic landscapes.
