Arctic Wildlife in June

One Tuesday stalwart has recently returned from a trip to the Arctic, something he does almost on an annual basis.  This time the boat didn't travel as close to the coast as it had in previous years, so these pictures give you an idea of the pictures you can expect in those circumstances.  Photos from a trip, which stayed closer to the coast may be seen here
