Is this photo real!?!?

Recommended Posts

My buddy forwarded me this picture and asked me my thoughts. It looks real to me, I just have to believe its very veryy rare and THEN to get a great photo of it? Either way, it's kind of crazy to think about. Here is the writing attached to the picture:

Alaska... one in a billion photo

The photo was taken at the entrance to Katlian Bay at the end of the road in Sitka , Alaska ...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. He apparently didn't sustain any injuries from the terrifying experience.

The whale was just around the corner from the ferry terminal, and all the kayaker could think at that moment

in time was: "Paddle Man--really fast!"

The whale's mouth is fully open with the bottom half under the boat.

If the whale had closed his mouth before he furiously paddled away -

He might have been LUNCH!!!

Look at the picture again - He is in the whale’s MOUTH

No, it's been proven fake. Google it, there is a story of a guy who got bored and combined two of his photos to make this. He openly admitted it is fake

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
