It’s amazing how comfortable deer feel around the students here.  I was standing just a few feet from this guy.  In Monterey, I was happy with how closely I could observe harbor seals on a daily basis.  Now it is deer that I see daily.

Humpback Whales at Point Lobos

I hear this has been a very busy season for humpback whale sightings in the Monterey Bay.  It has been my first time seeing a series of significant sightings; the past few times I’ve visited Point Lobos, I’ve seen several whales spouting, breaching and slapping their tails as they hunt for food.
