This July 9 photo was taken in Sitka Alaska, while hiking to the raptor center. “I, my dad & uncle spotted this black-tailed deer doe grazing on the side of the road, she showed no fear when we were quietly walking up the trail and minded her own business, she was gone the time by the time we left the raptor center,” writes Ethan Hursch-Eslava.

“What is this creature that was swimming around in the Auke bay, what appears to be a sea monster,” writes Ethan Hursh-Eslava. “However a quick look through the binoculars, and it’s a black bear that couldn’t find a place to climb ashore on the other side, thus he swam back to where he started. So remember, if you spot something swimming in the water, bring a pair of binoculars to see what it really before blurting out it’s a sea monster.”(Courtesy Photo / Ethan Hursh-Eslava)
