July 30, 2005
Just returned from a trip to Alaska. I went armed for bear—and walrus—and had to leave my bug lens at home. Luckily this fellow was large enough a regular telephoto lens could handle him.

If anyone has a chance to look, my other Alaska photos are accessible from this page (look for Alaska in the left column)...

It's good to be back and checking out all the great new photos on BugGuide!
