[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Humpback whale came close to the whale watching boat and I was lucky to get a photograph .
There were about 70 people on the boat and at least 50 had cameras . I missed several great photographs because I couldn't get close to the side of the boat . However I captured this one !

quelle joie d'avoir pu non seulement capturer la photo, toutefois d'avoir pu vivre cet instant magique, merveilleusement bien rendue, on distingue bien la force du mamifère marin...bon job...bravo...BI

I'm jealous of you, Jim, for just being able to witness something like this. In occasions such as this one, I have only one advice : use your elbows !
As for the picture, it is a pity that the head is under water. But what is interesting is the view of the whole fin, where the whale got its name from. It beats all those cliché shots from the tail coming out of the water. Well done, TFS.
