Humpbacks everywhere

There were lots of humpbacks in Geographe Bay today, some in close and some quite active. I missed a double breach (very spectacular – two whales close together leaping out of the water in unison), but to photograph something like that you need a lot of luck. If the camera is not pointing at the right spot at the right time it is all over. However I got a lot of shots I am pleased with. Here are some of them.

And to finish the day this Blue Whale went past. Photos never do justice to these awesome mammals – the largest thing that has ever lived. In this shot you can only see about 25% of the length of the whale – it is moving to the left, and its head is underwater. The back 2/3rds of the body is also underwater.
