Wildlife photography - Humpback Whales and Bald Eagles of Alaska
I am in SE Alaska right now. In the heart of the Tongass National Forest, the second largest rain forest in the world after the Amazon. It wouldn't be SE Alaska if it is not raining. Weather is actually quite good, by Alaskan standard. This Bald Eagle and I were both soaked when I took its photo and we were humming the same tune :
"Raindrops keep falling on our heads, that doesn't mean our eyes will soon be turning red. I'm never gonna stop the rain by complaining, because I'm free, nothing is worrying me."
The Humpback whale is getting a good feeding with that gaping mouth. The method they use is called Bubble Net Feeding. See my previous post for explanation and visit my website MichaelDanielHo.com to see many more wildlife photos from Alaska.
