One of them saw me & they all rushed into the water!
Headed out today. Went up into Fortune Channel looking for my bear friends. Found only one up there.Didn’t recognize it,took a few shots & decided to go over into Gunner inlet to try my luck there.Ended up finding two bears there. Neither of them could see the other at the moment. Bears are constantly watching out for each other!
The first bear I found, I’ve seen before in this spot. It looks like a large male. I got out of the boat to get a better angle. It did keep a eye on me but he wasn’t concerned about me.
I only move when the bears head is down & watch where I’m stepping. I try not to make any noise. When it looks at me,I freeze. As long as I’m not moving while it’s watching me,they generally don’t get skittish.
Left my furry friend in Gunner inlet. Thats when I found a third bear. Didn’t recognize it. Took a few shots & continued out of Gunner.
Headed to Tsapee Narrows. The Daredevil came over & so did Delilah. Not sure why but I couldn’t connect with the focusing? It happens sometimes.Eagles move so fast that it’s all I can do just to hang on when they zoom past!
Didn’t get much,but had to move on,the sun was getting low in the west. Headed back into town.
Noticed Tim or Tam on Lovekin point. With that forest fire sunset I couldn’t resist shooting a few.
Went over to Deadman island to visit with Romeo. Juliette stays on the nest to keep her egg warm. Romeo brings her all the food she needs. He is the best mate any girl eagle could have!
That forest fire north of us made the sunset turn a deep bright orange! Forest fires always make great sunsets!
Took a few shots of Romeo & that gorgeous sunset. The sun went behind some low coastal clouds & that was all she wrote.
Said goodnight to Romeo & called it a night.
Another great shoot under my belt!
There is a large forest fire north of us at the moment. It’s called the “Little Bobtail lake” fire & is 50 klicks SW of Prince Rupert.
When a forest fire happens,it sends up tons of particulate into the atmosphere. This “particulate cloud” gets swept away with the prevailing winds. All this suspension will actually filter the suns shorter wavelengths & only allow longer wavelengths through. These longer wavelengths are the only ones strong enough to penetrate this suspension & as a result gives us deeper colours near sunset.
