Whale Tail

Artist's Description

A Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) sounded for the depths very close to me.
It’s a thrill when one experiences such a close encounter with whales. Hearing whales chortle, groan, bellow and breath deeply as they effortlessly swim past is unforgettable. Then, with a graceful lift of their massive tails whales dive below the surface, leaving no trace of their presence other than the brief happy memory of a chance encounter.
This is a second photo of the same diving humpback whale. I’m not sure which one I like more. Which one do you prefer?
