Harp Seal Pups

Every year, the Harp Seals come to the Saint Lawrence bay, Canada, to give birth to their pups.

Bald Eagles, Alaska

Much like the Grizzlies I photographed in September 2014, these bald eagles come near this river to feast on the spawning salmon. As this happens later in the season here in the south west of Alaska (less than 100 miles north of Juneau), this attracts hundreds of birds from other areas where the salmon runs are over now.

Brown bears, Alaska

Every year, in September, the salmon that made its way up river to spawn, dies in those same rivers. The dying fish (that has colored red) attracts attraction from the brown bears. These images were made on a trip trough the Katmai National Park in September 2014. (all images © 2014 koen blanquART)
