I am an Old Fashioned Naturalist:
In the summer I study a group of Harbor Seals that use a haul out rock not far from where I live. They leave the second week of August like clock-work.
In the winter I work for Allied Whale as a fluke matcher: Individual Humpback whales can be recognized by patterns on the underside of their fluke when they dive. Allied Whale holds an ever expanding catalog of over 6000 individuals whale that inhabit North Atlantic waters.
But always our wild Maine neighbors are a source of fascination and pleasure to watch and photograph.
