A big bear fishing in a shallow Alaska lake. This Alaskan brown bear and her cub are searching these waters for razor clams, an integral part of the diet of a bear. Once they have found clams, the bear attacks the mollusk by prying the shell open using its claws.

A Dandelion and a Puffin - Do you think this little Atlantic Puffin knows that he is gazing at a weed? Most likely not, but it still makes for an adorable photo. Maybe it is just living up to its nickname of Clown of the Sea. Stock Image #20110703-192536C
Cheeky Fellow - The Atlantic Puffin of Newfoundland is an unique sea bird. While watching this bird dive gracefully underwater, it is easy to forget that he is covered with fine feathers that shed the water easily. This puffin gives us a great profile shot and lets us see the detail in its face and beak. Stock Image #20110707-181340
Love at First Site - It is quite a sight to see when one of the Northern Gannet pair returns to the nest. The elaborate greeting rituals of these beautiful sea birds include arching of the necks and bodies and gentle tapping of the beaks. Of course, in a colony the size of the one in Newfoundland, there is no privacy but it does not seem to bother this pair. Stock Image #20110623-152637A
Enjoy the Birds Eye View - This photo just about sums up our experience in Haines, Alaska, with the Bald Eagles last year. Beautiful landscape, majestic birds and a feeling of awe. We were not the only species having these feelings. Stock Image #20101109-130009
