The unique “footprint” as seen on the underside of the tail flukes of a Humpback Whale (megaptera novaeangliae). Snapped near to the Chilean Antarctic Base Gonzalez Videla, Antarctic Peninsula.

Crikey! That is one hell of a catch!
Thanks Zoe! We didn’t see many whales but our zodiac driver followed this one for us and bingo! ;o) x
Great capture – and a great location to boot
Thanks Jay! Oh yes, the location was out-of-this-world! I still can’t believe I’ve been there! ;o)
A dream of a shot. You privileged person you.
Thanks Steven! I certainly agree that I was privileged to visit this amazing place! Still can’t believe I was there! When you’re at the place it’s like being in a bubble of non-reality!

Thanks Dawn! This was one of two whales who surfaced a few feet from our zodiac (too close at that moment for the lens!) :o) xxx
