Peregrine Falcon
Shooting against a bright background doesn't help. This bird never really got close and of course it was moving fast.
Species: Falco peregrinus (Peregrine Falcon)

Justin Playing On Trampoline
Apparently a Trampoline is great for training for doing crazy skateboard tricks. Justin has had lots of experience getting airborne.

Orca Breaching Composite
The whale doesn't need to get this far out of the water to breath - she (short dorsal fin) is looking at us.
Species: Orcinus orca (killer whale, orca)

King Fisher Fishing
This is 5 photos composited in photoshop. This tiny bird was repeatedly fishing (dumb fish) so I shot on each flight. Too bad I don't own a 1500mm lens.
Species: Alcedo atthis (European Kingfisher, Common Kingfisher)

Common Yellowthroat
This little guy had a really nice song and was flying along the length of the ditch. He (this is a male) mostly hid in the brambles but did sometimes come out.

I used to think that all small birds were "little brown jobbies". Not so much anymore.

Species: Geothlypis trichas (Common Yellowthroat)

Species: Megaceryle alcyon (Belted Kingfisher)

Timing
This is how long it took us to do the gap between each trail marker. We had lunch at marker 9 and deducted the time for lunch from that gap.

Dive Sequence By Rocks
Here three whales were feeding quite close to a rock wall - the water is about 130 feet deep here. This Humpback (Megaptera novaeangliae) has most of one fluke missing.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

Dive Sequence
At this location, the whales would come up to the surface and breath about 5 to 8 times and then dive again, generally for 6 to 8 minuets. You can tell there last breath at the surface because you would see the hump back, and then the tail as they go down.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

Dive Sequence
I love all the water that runs off the flukes as the tail comes out of the water.

Grizzly Bear Rubbing Tree

It was dark (past sunset), I was on a moving boat and I had slow speed film in the camera.  I beleive these
are 1/8th of a second shots (on tripod).
