Well, I can cross being inside a school of 2-300 tuna feeding on baitfish on the surface (herring or mackerel) off my bucket list! (Not that it ever was exactly on it.)

You are very blessed Jgnfld. That must have got the Adrenalin flowing! Nice shots.

Uh...that would be very much a yes! (though I must say I'm often jealous of your available wildlife).

Put it this way...I rarely whoop and holler when I'm singlehanding my sailboat. This time I was just out and out screaming. At one point some of the baitfish (herrring or mackerel--they were just too deep to see in the roiled water) went under my boat to hide or something. A bunch of the tuna literally bumped/thumped them out of there by bouncing off the hull (7/8" solid uncored fiberglass) and keel (solid iron). Yes, that will get the adrenaline flowing! Note (click on pics to see exifs) these were taken at 70mm.

About the only equivalently just plain awestruck-inducing natural wildlife phenomenon at this level I have personally witnessed was being inside a caribou migration.

Don't be jealous! I in turn still covet seeing some American Wildlife-wolves would be high on the list! And bears! Now, seeing a wolverine would make me quite content to pass off on this earth! Chances are remote. I'll happily invite you to visit our shores and come and experience our 20 hour-a-day sleeping lions dozing Rhino's, and Elephants, the latter of which may certainly cause an adrenaline rush but for the wrong reasons (recent studies have indicated more frequent attacks by these giants). In over 30 years of visiting Game Park/Reserves I have only witnessed 1 chase and kill, and 3 attempts. Adrenalin inducing yes, but 10 years average wait. I'm not so sure its worth the wait! . But there are others- such as watching a black headed Heron catch 3 lizards in the space of half an hour!
Keep the Camera ready- a great white may just make an appearance

This seagull came up right beside me on the beach while I was reading in my lawn chair.
