Humpback Whale, Megaptera novaeangliae

This was taken from kayak which my friend Dennis shared with me. Though the whale show was all too brief, we were surrounded by a feeding frenzy of pelicans, sea lions and Heermann's Gulls and it was an amazing experience. The frenzy moved around us as the fish moved below the surface. Several times we must have been right about where the fish were, as we had pelicans diving so close to us that we were splashed. Another good day at the office!
