Thayer’s Gull

This picture of a Thayer’s Gull (Larus thayeri) was taken on the BC coast during the herring spawn in early March one year. To many it’s ‘just a gull’ shot I know, but what I […]


Sitting on the Falls

Having some time on my hands over the winter recently, gave me the opportunity to re-visit many files from my back catalogue of images and here’s an old shot of a young grizzly bear who […]


Rootball Spirit

We’ve seen this spirit bear mom (and her black cub) on a few occasions since I took this series of shots in the Great Bear Rainforest back in 2011. This image never got selected or […]


Still Learning!

Brandt’s Cormorant

A Snowy Looks Up

Here’s a shot of a snowy owl taken one winter on the BC coast as it looks up at another owl flying overhead. I learnt an interesting fact about owls recently, in that an owl’s […]

We’d been stood at the end of a trail on the BC coast watching this female grizzly bear fishing and feeding for quite some time. She would catch a salmon or dig out a carcass […]


Coastal Momma

Here’s a momma grizzly bear giving us the eye. She’s a bear of the BC coast that I know well and that little cub just in shot is one of the third set of cubs […]


Kermode Bear

I haven’t been fortunate enough to get out and see any spirit bears for a while now and this is a shot from ten years ago that never got processed. I have published a couple […]


Fast Asleep on Larch Creek

Here’s a nice scenic shot taken from Larch Creek in the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary here on the BC coast, but what else do you see? Quietly wander in a little bit farther and ‘BOOM’ […]
