In this case the boat’s antenna helps to obscure the humpback whale fluking, however the intent of the photo is again to show that on occasion we do get close to that we are viewing. As the guide and picture taker it is often a “shot from the hip” rather than a planned and timed photo. Guest safety is number one priority over a good photo.
The grizzly tours from our resort on Knight Inlet, in the fall, travel to a small river up the inlet where the salmon are spawning. The abundance of salmon in the area attracts grizzly from a wide area along the BC coast it is estimated that between 40 and 50 grizzlies come to this area for the salmon. The bears have a short time to fatten before hibernation so catching technique is important. Looking under the belly of this grizzly one can see that salmon do escape and even though this grizzly does not appear to have the best technique it proceed to catch and eat several salmon while we were in the viewing stands.
