A Lucky opportunity to hang with a Sperm whale while he just floated in front of me and my friends. It’s so hard to explain how small you feel when in proximity to this amazing creature. Not because of their size alone but because of their unique capabilities in the Ocean. They are incredible and impressive. This creature is truly worthy of learning more about...#whales

I call this pose inverted sperm whale… Namaste. A Common practice for sperm whales

Thanksgiving with the sperm whales...It’s hard to believe I have so much in common with a sperm whale… They love to dive and so do I! Of course they could dive in the neighborhood of 3000 feet. They have a big brain, the biggest brain on earth and I’ve told I have a big brain. And if that wasn’t enough they love to eat squid and so do I… Perhaps our likeness is why this beautiful creature chose to stop in front of me to have his photo taken. #whales #diving

Just saw a former Philly Eagle player do a Magic show. Jon Dorenbos.did an Inspirational magic show that was so impressive. You should check him out. Coincidentally he is inspired by Eagles... this is a shot of a Sitka Eagle from a few years ago. #eagles #jondorenbos

The Eagle... Being in Philadelphia makes me wonder how America chose the baldheaded eagle for on our emblem And our national bird. Congress approved the eagle in 1784 because of its beauty and strength and felt it in-bodied freedom. As amazing of a man as Benjamin Franklin was, I gotta say he had it all wrong when he suggested the turkey for the national bird. He said it was much more respectable. I think most would agree we are better off we did not choose a butterball #americaneagle #eagles

A Young Maasai boy walking through his Kenyan village on. A hot afternoon near. No longer a nomadic tribe his life is centered around his Maasai village where he attends school during the day. The Maasai have a rich and impressive culture that continues to be influenced more and more by Western culture. #maasai

This beautiful giraffe slowly maneuvered down to take a long drink. Watching them go through the motions of taking a simple drink is a sight to see!

The blue footed booby is known for their goofy and elaborate mating dances. This particular photo shows what happens after a.mating dance...

This cub is checking out who these 2 legged creatures are that keep staring at him and and taking photographs. Sometimes you can literally be the first human that a spring cub will see! We suspect this may have been the case with these cubs in Katmai

A tender moment...

Love photographing next to my favorite photographer and adventure pal Lianna. If one of us misses a shot the other likely gets it. This time we both did and now we are heading back for spring cubs.

Bear in the Rock-pile 5/17 That is about the easiest sighting we had that trip. White Bears against gray and black rocks is easy to find even for a visually challenged person like myself.

I call this this one Bear Crossing.

Great story to tell Related to this photo. We had tried to photograph this wolf two days in a row but he would disappear before the morning light was good. This particular morning we followed him and just as the the light was about perfect he started walking into the woods for good. Figuring I had nothing left to lose I decided to Howl... At first I was worried that my friends standing next to me in the middle of this river with their tripods set up trying to photograph him would accuse me of making him disappear for good as a result of my attempt at Howling. Much to our happiness the wolf turned around and walked to the edge of the river and howled back-and-forth with me four times. That’s when I was donned the wolf whisperer...
