Outstanding shots Kdog!
We had hoped to get shots of the humpbacks bubble net feeding, as a group of about 14 adult whales had been doing so in the area where we were for the last 10 days but today they were not in the mood for cooperative feeding.
Still I was quite happy with the close encounter, we had cut the engines and were drifting when the whales decided to come and investigate us. Since it is illegal here for boats to approach closer than 100 yards from the whales, encounters that close are rare, making it quite an honor to be chosen by the whales for a close up visit.

Great photos, Redhawk and Kdog! Redhawk, you could have used the momma bear and cub photo for the 3-of-a-kind assignment (assuming they were shot AFTER the assignment was posted, of course).

Redhawk, those are sweet.....if that's out the back door can't wait to see what's out the front door? Was this on vacation or is this taken from your house? I'm hoping to save some money and take the family to either Washington or Juno to do some whale watching. I am seriously so jealous of all you guys/gals.

Kdog, these are awesome, awesome shots! I tried to rep you but have to spread a few more around first.

I am jealous of your close proximity to the whale AND your awesome photography!

They are all taken here around Juneau, the whales out between Shelter and Lincoln Islands, and the bears at Steep Creek by Mendenhall Glacier which is just down the road from my house.

Indeed an honour...how fortunate for you!
