Skeleton of a Gray Whale (Eschrichtius robust)

This skeleton is hanging from the ceiling of the “Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center” in Kodiak, Alaska. It is a complete skeleton from a dead Gray Whale that washed up on the beach of Kodiak.
The image is a composite of two images, required to capture the entire whale.

Savannah Sparrow Perched On Lupine

Many of the areas that we hiked in Unalaska, Alaska were covered with Lupine and we could see Savannah Sparrows feeding on them. Thought that you might enjoy seeing the sparrow against a purple background.Savannah Sparrow among purple flowersImage Captured with a Nikon D7200 Camera, Nikon 300 mm f/2.8 lens and a Nikon TC-14E II 1.4 teleconverter, focal Length 420 mm, ISO 800, 1/320 sec at f/6.3, hand held.
