Humpback whales bubblenetting herring as dusk falls in South Chatham Strait, located in Alaska’s Inside Passage. The tall peaks of Baranof Island frame the background, a scene of spectacular beauty yet the whales have only one thing on their minds….eating herring.
Finally, the following short video represents why I adore humpback whales. Please forgive my humble, awkward attempts to create video footage of the whales. I think I need a proper HD video camera plus a non-rocking boat in addition to videographraphy lessons. Next time I’ll stick to a DSLR but in the meantime, please enjoy this tribute to my favorite big beasties of the deep.
