Pictures of the Month





    I first saw Humpback Whales "bubble-net" feeding fifteen years ago, but never managed to photograph this stunning behavior until now.  In early July, we spent a week on Admiralty Island, most of it the company of this group of whales, which gorged on shoals of herring around the clock.
