If you have read much of the blog you will know that my camera is a waterproof Pentax Optio Wpi 6MP and 3X Optical Zoom. It is a good camera but does not have a “great” distance lens so I sometime zoom in with the computer and it gets a little “fuzzy”. The point being is that I saw the guest’s photo back at the lodge (because that is what happens in the evening) and they were great. In this photo the cub was using mother as a play toy but that all changed in tomorrow’s post….
Lunge feeding humpback whales are common on the whale watching trips that leave Grizzly Bear Lodge most days. This sideways lunge will on occasion catch more that herring. After the lunge the whale sinks and forces the water out through the baleen leaving the herring trapped and to be swallowed. Sometime a duck or seagull will exploded several a meter (yard) or two out of the water in to the air having escaped becoming whale food. Those that escape seem to be little worse for wear and continue to feed.
