Your whale pictures are phenomenal! Do you have any tips for getting good whale pictures?

Another thing Hawaii and Alaska share.....I love the spunk those birds have because I imagine their journey to be far more tiring than the whales migration, but they just keep going. It is inspiring.

I loved your photos. The one with the leaves is very similar to a large print I bought at a garage sale.......Pua Malia. I bought number 22 of 40 for only $40. Love a deal! Thanks for the bring along cause the ride with you is special. Deb

P.S. Now I need to find those birds for Jennifer too! I know at least the moose will be easy.

Happy V'Day all!

Thanks SheaG and fishdiva.

D P: Look for those little guys in short grass, looking for bugs. They're so cute when they run.

Jen & Deb: I'll be anxious to hear about whatever you find, large or small.

newenglander6: I keep the camera in sport mode for quick focus and repetitive shots. Mostly it's luck.

Canadasunny53: Glad to oblige. My family keeps me posted on the brutality :)

nks1234: I'll let them know you're coming!
