Humpback whales off the coast of Cape Ann Ma. Beautiful creatures. Unfortunately we didn't get to witness a breach, but we did see 8 of them....

# 2 looks like a nuclear submarine breaking the surface. I like the series and think the B & W adds impact and drama that colour would not pick up.

What equipt....camera, lens...did you use?

Any photo ops of whales in the Atlantic where they are so rareare worth taking advantage of - that said, breaching and sounding photos of whales are relatively common, but feeding photos are not. Humpbacks are communal ("cooperative")feeders, and #3demonstrates that. You took goodadvantage of an uncommon opportunity. Well Done.

thanks everyone. I agree - the feeding shots are my favorite as well. Especially since it is a communal activity.
