All flora and fauna are reproducing here in Kachemak Bay.
This time of year we see everything from bull kelp to sea otters (and "mega fauna") in abundance. This year, in particular, there have been a lot of humpback whales in the Bay, probably because the schools of sand lance and other small bait fish have exploded. Seeing several pods of whales on the way to, and from, the cabin in Little Tutka Bay is not uncommon.
I was traveling with lodge guests last week and we came upon an area of lighter-colored water that was about 50 x 200 feet long. Usually that means shallow water, but my sonar said our depth was 150+ feet.
Curious, I slowly motored over to it and found a "smack" of small jellyfish, about 3-inches in diameter. Also known as a swarm or bloom, there must have been a half million "jellies" in this congregation. I leaned over the bow rail and grabbed a photo. That's my reflection on the water that you see as I peer in the depths of jellyfish.
