Humpback Whale, Megaptera novaeangliae waving a pectoral fin or fluke at people in kayaks. Avila Beach, California

This Humpback whale did a little bit of a roll while feeding in Port San Luis Harbor near Avila Beach giving us a view of either its pectoral fin or a fluke. You can see the scale between the Person standing on the paddle board and the size of the fin or fluke. This whale is massive!
