CRITTERS: No lack of interesting furry, feathery and finny creatures, all seen in the wild* during various trips to Alaska:
Horned Puffin in Resurrection Bay, out of Seward (June, 2011):
Sea Otter in Ketchimak Bay, out of Homer (June, 2011):
Harbor Seals out of Ketchikan (June, 2014):
A Common Redpoll in Talkeetna (June 2011):
Black Bear eating grass, out of Ketchikan (June 2014):
Had to dig deeply in the archives to find this scanned photo of a Grizzly (Alaskan Brown Bear) in Denali National Park that I took with my little 35 mm film camera before I even knew about DSLR (August, 1996). Note that the poor bear has had an encounter with a Porcupine and its face is full of quills. I wonder whether it survived:
*OK, I lied about only including photos from the wild. This bear was in Brookfield Zoo, Chicago, Illinois (August, 2009). I had to show my picture to SOMEONE!

FENCES: Look closely-- there is a railing, it should qualify.
My photo "oil painting" of an old boat in Hoonah, June, 2014 (click on photo for enlarged images):
There just aren't many fences in wide-open Alaska, but this one is keeping our granddaughters safe, so maybe this will do (June 2014):
