The photo was taken at the entrance to Katlian Bay at the end of the road in Sitka .
The whale is coming up to scoop up a mouthful of herring (the small fish seen at the surface around the kayak).
The kayaker is a local Sitka Dentist.
"Yep, that is me in the picture. Yep that is a whale that was just around the corner from the ferry terminal.
"Paddle really fast" is the only thing I could think of at the time..
Also thinking that I don't look like a herring, don't smell like a herring but with the same herring instinct of "get the hell out of the way of that big mouth!!"
Still living to tell yet another story.. "
Sitka 's very own Dr. Richard Kraft, during one of his routine oral examinations.
He is in the whales MOUTH!!!
Yep, it goes to PROVE.
There is a bigger mouth, then Carly Simon! LOL
