While in Juneau, I got to go whale watching. Humpback whales are almost always seen solo, but can be seen together in two instances: a mother with her calf, and even more exciting and not very well understood, when the whales group together to feed using a “bubble net” technique. From Wikipedia: “a group of whales swims in a shrinking circle blowing bubbles below a school of prey. The shrinking ring of bubbles encircles the school and confines it in an ever-smaller cylinder.”
I was beyond lucky to get to see not only a mother and her calf, but around a half dozen whales participating in bubble net feeding together. Snapping their photo is pretty difficult, but I tried my best!We also saw a bunch of sea lions hanging out on a buoy. If you look closely, you will see a sea lion that managed to, inexplicably, squeeze it’s way between the bars on the topmost platform of the buoy.  View high resolution

Paul Watson and Sea Shepherd, Cowardice Under Direct Action Fire?

Shark Diver puts my thoughts about Sea Shepherd into words. That organization is such a fucking joke.

I wouldn’t mind returning to Maui right about now…
