I have had an interest in marine mammals, particularly whales, since I was in graduate school. I am lucky enough to live near Monterey Bay, California, arguably one of the best places to see marine mammals in the world.

Here is a tiny sampling of the best literally several thousand photos of whales, dolphins, sea lions, seals, sea otters and manatees.
