Jeremy's New Camera
My nephew Jeremy got a new Canon just a day or two ago. He shot this distant Black Bear, and the following photos from his yard in Petersburg.
Imagine being able to watch Killer Whales from your house. The only whales that I have seen off the coastal trail in Anchorage are Belugas. It has been years since I have seen a Beluga. The local, Cook Inlet population of Belugas is in serious trouble, probably because of global warming.
A nice male Surf Scoter. I would love to see these guys from my yard. I have to go to Seward to see them. That is not entirely true, once in a while they will show up in Anchorage.
A distant shot of the scoter and a Harlequin Duck.
A nice shot of a tugboat, the Western Mariner.
Jeremy's son, Jasper I think, in their living room. I seriously wish that I could have a view like this from my living room. I get to look out at the highway through my front window. I look forward to getting many more photos of Southeastern Alaska in the future.
