Well we've had some interesting widlife roaming the neighorhood the last couple of days. Yesterday an mother and cub Polar Bear swam out to the island in the bay (about 200 yards from our house) and spent the day wandering the island. Unfortunately they remained on the far side of the island every time I was able to get out so I was unable to get a photo. However this led to some concern as they didn't swin off the island during the day. There was also the corpse of a seal rotting in front of the store on the beach for the last week, and the island is down wind from the island. This lead to the realization that when the bears left the island they might head straight towards the store and come ashore there for a snack. Unfortunately this occured to me as I walked to the store in the middle of the night in the dark to recieve frieght, It would have been a more useful realization while I was still at home so I could have got my gun to take with me to the store. Luckily there was nothing there when I went to the store but in the morning the bears and seal were gone.
Then this morning there were Bow whales in the bay about 500 yards in front of the house. they just circled for hours feeding on plankton in the bay, once again my efforts to photograph these creatures lead to one photo, that resembles waves breaking over a rock in the bay. Oh, well eventually I'll get a photo of a breach if I'm here long enough.
You know its alot easier to photograph wildlife at the zoo.
