Ever Feel Like You Are In The “Wrong Place, At The Wrong Time”?

I am sure we all have experiences relating to the old saying “I was in the wrong place at the wrong time”. Here is one man’s experience of being in the wrong place and the wrong time:

He is in the whales MOUTH!!!!

This photo was taken this year at the entrance to Katlian Bay at the end of the road in Sitka, Alaska.

The whale is coming up to scoop up a mouthful of herring (the small fish seen at the surface around the kayak).

The kayaker is Dr. Richard Kraft, a local Sitka Dentist, who barely escaped the mouth of this great whale. His response to his experience was "the only thing I could think of at the time was to paddle really fast…also thinking that I don’t look like a herring, don’t smell like a herring but with the same herring instinct of "get the heck out of the way of that big mouth!!"

Here are a few more misc. photos related to being in the wrong place at the wrong time:
