p.1 #1 · Alaska- Parakeet & least auklets


Last of this brief Pribilof Islands series.
Underwater "fliers" all. Least auklets are pretty small- but they also spend winter out to sea, coming ashore only to nest.

He looks kind of surprised Charlie. That didn't have anything to do with a Gute-Fahrt did it

Thanks Chris, Ron, Tim and Birdie.
Not sure what'll be next. There aren't many places where I did wildlife photography. Most of my travels did, in fact, seldom give me wildlife shooting opportunities.
Tim is referring to a pic I added to my previous post. The long-ago pic was of me standing by a sign in Austria that said, "Gute Fahrt," which in German means basically, "Have a good trip." Years ago such signs were occasionally on the outskirts of small towns- readable when you left town.

Another nice image Charlie. There isn't as severe an angle so I am assuming you weren't risking life and limb to get these.

Thanks Dorian, Ken, Eric and Geck.
As mentioned a couple of times, these images may look like I was clinging to the cliffs to get the shots- but I wasn't. The edges were covered with grasses and small bushes that sometimes overhung the actual edge of the rock. Seeing this, I stayed about 5-feet from the edge and looked for unobstructed views. Usually I was shooting down, but to the side. My 400mm lens gave the narrow field of view (hence the impression of me risking life and limb). More magnification would have been better- but I didn't have it.
