Mockingbirds Approach Camera – Reflections of Nature

The mocking birds, like many of the other wildlife found in the Galapagos are quite naïve because of the lack of land predators on the islands. On our landing at Gardner Bay we were greeted by the Española Mockingbird. Apparently because of the lack of water on the island, these birds see humans as a potential source of water. At every opportunity you can see these guys searching through our belongings hoping to quench their thirst with whatever their little beaks could find.

Humpback Whale Breach – Reflections of Nature

One of my favorite and challenging things to do whenever I’m in Southeast Alaska is to film humpback whales breaching. Most of the time it all comes down to luck. You never know exactly where they are going to breach. Fortunately this time, I had the camera rolling at the exact spot the whale breached. In the end I came out with this amazing shot.

Hundreds of Fur Seals on the Beach – Video

One of the great surprises of South Georgia are the abundance of fur seals that can be found there. On my first trip to South Georgia, I had the opportunity to visit Ocean Harbour, which was the location of an old whaling station. During my visits to the Galapagos Islands I had the chance to see five or six fur seals but on South Georgia, they number in the hundreds. The first time I stepped foot on Ocean Harbour I was in awe at the number of fur seals I saw. There were fur seals everywhere. They were all over the beach and in the water. Not only that, they were congregating in the lush grass at the base of the mountain. There were so many sea lions that it made me feel like an alien on another planet.
