January sighting near Lutsen

January 21, 2017

Upon arriving at our condo in Lutsen I stepped out on the deck with my camera, (D300 Nikon with 600mm telephoto lens) and got incredibly lucky with this shot. Not sure what type of whale it was, and never saw it again although I monitored the lake for hours during our week’s stay.

Nina Notes: Great shot, Gary! Looks like the Lake Superior Minke whale.

Grey Whale Migration in Marquette

January 11, 2017
Caught a group of Grey whales feeding up in the shallows along McCarty’s Cove. Cold day, but a couple Yoopers came out to watch. The Grey Whales should be around a couple more days before continuing their migration up to Copper Harbor.

Nina Notes: Thanks for a report from the South Shore of Lake Superior!
