As the blog writer and guide I have frequently mentioned that the best strategy in whale watching is to do nothing. Doing nothing means once the whales are located it is often best to sit in a quite boat and let the whales carry on with their natural activity without the noise of boats moving around. This is especially effective if you are the only boat in the area. Besides providing the guests with opportunities for great photos it gives me time to play with my Pentax Optio (6mp 3Xoptical zoom) and get a shot like the one posted. If I am able to do this with a “point and shoot” imagine what guests are able to do with the cameras they normally have.
Grizzly Family feud continues
This photo was taken two weeks after the posting on October 28th and these two cubs are still fighting. We observed these three bears throughout the summer on our grizzly bear watching days on the Glendale River and the family feud was part of their daily activity. This photo was taken from above from the viewing stands, which we use after August 24th, while the photo posted on the 28th was from a boat on the lower river. The location is not important the entertainment value of these bears make the guests stay more enjoyable.
