Close Encounters

It is the height of the humpback whale migration south at the moment. Plus there are a number of blue whales passing by. Yesterday a mother calf pair of humpbacks seemed to be inspecting the coastline and they passed Pt Picquet less than 30m from the shore. They dawdled past Eagle Bay and when they went past Rocky Point they were still just outside the line of rocks in the shallows. The calf was pretty excited, continuously doing tail slaps. Here are some images.

To cap off the day two pairs of blue whales passed within 300 metres of the shore at Pt Picquet later in the day.
