Alaska… One in a Billion Shot…



HOLY …  SH_T !!!



…One In A Billion Shot…

The photo was taken at the entrance to Katlian Bay, at the end of the road, just around the corner from the ferry terminal, in Sitka, Alaska.

The whale is coming up to scoop up a mouthful of herring (the small fish seen at the surface all around the kayak.)

The kayaker is a local Sitka Dentist. All he could think of at that moment in time was:

"Paddle fast–and I do mean paddle really fast…!"

In case you didn’t realize it…, the whale’s mouth is fully open with the bottom half completely under his Kayak…! If the whale had closed his mouth before he had furiously paddled away – he might have been LUNCH…!!!

As the story goes, he apparently didn’t sustain any injuries from the terrifying experience, except that is…, a memory of what happened…, that I don’t think will EVER-EVER go away!!!
