  • A Very Cold Queen shows a Queen Bumblebee on Early Blueberry Blossoms on a cold morning in Juneau, Alaska.
  • While I was filming her a raven was calling so I added a clip of a raven calling by Hank Lentfer.
  • While filming Harbor Seals underwater I noticed lots of mysids in the video footage as the tide was advancing.
  • In many places in the world freshwater mysids can be a very important food for fish but sometimes they can cause harm. For information on this look at Advances in
    the ecology of freshwater mysids
  • Red-breasted Mergansers eating Sculpins shows both the male and female eating a sculpin.
  • I have seen this quite a bit and I suspect most of the ones they are eating are the Staghorn Sculpins.
  • These sculpins have "sharp horns" that make them very difficult to swallow.
  • So the mergansers have to try to subdue them before attempting to swallow the sculpins.
  • Look at this article on Staghorn Sculpins by Mary Willson
  • The Periwinkle Dance shows a pair of Mallards moving their feet up and down in an intertidal area.
  • In this area periwinkles were very abundant and their leg movements causes them to detach and float upward making them easier to catch.
  • Periwinkles are a very important food for several creatures in Alaska. For information about this look at Sitka Periwinkle by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
  • Purple Mountain Saxifrage and Nugget Falls is a video showing the results from three different camera's (GoPro, Panasonic fz 300 and Panasonic fz 1000). 
  • It was fun to film normal with the sound of the falls and then to use 120 fps that slows things down without sound.
  • Interesting to determine what looks the best or best fits a discussion.
  • A Minks Place shows a possible place where a mink lives. Of interest is it often brings crabs through the area.
  • Marmot Kids in early June shows three youngsters that recently emerged from their den.
  • They are exploring their environment and very curious.
  • Surviving the Winter is about how beavers, that do not hibernate, find enough food to maintain themselves over winter in Alaska.
  • It is organized so you can discuss what may be going on without narration and interruption.
