Alaskan Animals

It’s not as easy as one thought of getting a good shot of animals. Whale watching, for example, it’s time consuming. It’s a test of patience, waiting with no sign or whatsoever, then suddenly popped out from nowhere. If you have a slow cameras (automatic point & shoot), too bad. All you likely to get is the after effect – then subsiding ripples.

I took a boat, pretty costly, very cold and breezy. By the time the whales decided appear, your fingers would have been frozen. But there’s nothing to complain about. If the weather wasn’t cold, the whale would have not been here. It’s part of the game and fun.

Here are a few shots of their tails. They can measured to 15 feet width.

Killer Whale family. (courtesy of picture from May Lee, thanks)

Other animals.. Bald Eagle. Easier to shot them standing then flying.

Shot this picture of the bear while riding an antique train to White Pass (the summit of Skagway). Quick and ready finger is needed.

The close encounter…

They have pussy cat too… 🙂
