While on the Passing Cloud we saw Humpback whales many times.
This one was seen in Louscoone Inlet for about an hour – it was slapping its pectoral fins on the water surface for long periods, punctuated by the occasional dive and a couple of breaches.
I could have sworn I posted these already, but I guess it was Tansy that posted it on her blog.
I post these shots for my English cousin Rachel who was on a cruise in the NE Pacific this summer and chose to watch a breaching humpback in stereo, rather than with one eye glued to the viewfinder, as she described on her blog yesterday. Which is why I was looking for these shots.
