Up Close & Personal with a Humpback Whale

Post by minniev » Wed Jul 24, 2019 9:15 am

Met this lady yesterday, and was close enough to touch her chin here. Astounding creatures. She and her baby played tag with the boat for about an hour. I have no chance to reshoot so am not asking you to critique it for a redo, but as always, all suggestions for editing are appreciated.

It was a fun experience. She and baby kept swimming under the boat. They could have easily toppled us as the baby was as big as the boat and the mama dwarfed it. They seemed to be playing with us.

It was about the closest-up I've seen whales, and I've had some close encounters. These seemed very interested in us. The boat is familiar to them and they feel comfortable.
