Black Turnstones

Here’s a bird often seen more on the shores of the outer BC coast than the inner estuaries and inlets. I came across these guys in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, just a […]


Mud Flats Grinch

Have you ever seen anyone put a finger on either side of their mouth and pull it apart to make a funny or scary face? Well this piece of ‘natural art’ seems to be depicting […]


It’s That Time Again!

It’s that time again! The time of year when the Pink Salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) are returning to the BC coast in numbers. Not necessarily the great swarms of fish from the not to distant past, […]


Baby Breach

Following on from the two images last month in Humpback Hugs, here’s another shot from that great day out along the BC coast. With her pec fin high out of the water, it is almost […]

This is Big Momma – matriarch of the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary here on the BC coast, photographed in the fall of 2018. Many of us have wondered what it has been like in the […]


In The Midst of the Action

Last weeks whale trip also gave me the opportunity to return back to Stuart Island here on the BC coast in what is now almost becoming an annual pilgrimage to ‘Eagle Heaven’. Once again there […]


Humpback Hugs

I was treated to my first day out on the water last week and had a pretty good encounter with a mother humpback whale and her calf. Both whales were quite active with mom breaching […]


Searching For Berries

Before the salmon start to run, now is the time the bears hear on the BC coast head out and search for berries, which make a welcomed change from Lyngby’s sedge and other coastal plant […]
