Beaver hops over whale
Posted on 07/15/2014 8:50:28 PM PDT by skeptoid
A Beaver (Harris Aircraft Services from Sitka) narrowly avoided a surfacing whale while landing at Angoon. on July 10 '14
Pilot may not have seen the whale, but the exhale plume was certainly a tipoff.
Hit pause/play to freeze the plume of mist and the whale's back.

I was looking for a beaver.
C’mon, don’t be so rough on the Beaver
Close shave for the Beaver

As said in some of the comments landing in water is not like landing on a runway. One thing to look out for is logs or driftwood among other things.
