  • Thanks Lorilee! Glad you like! It was a pretty spectacular moment. These two were in a pod of seven. I got other shots, but this one was by far the most spectacular.

    Wow—not only for the photograph which is brilliant, but for the experience.

  • Hi Dusker, yeah, it was pretty spectacular. They were about 70-80 yards away. I was following the one on the right and snapped just as the big one rocketed up out of the water. I was lucky and caught this one.

    Awesome capture Rich! I did whale watching last july. Im so jealous with your shot :-). Most of my shots were just a tale not something like this :-)

  • Thanks Jim. I was lucky. One of those moments when I had the camera pointing in the right direction at the right time. Glad you like.
