Whale watching

I have been out twice this week with the whale watch folk. On Monday we saw a cow and calf and then had double breaching (quite rare) and the pair doing it played by the boat for about half an hour. All these were shot with the H2 and 210 lens - it is quite handful in a rocking boat, I can tell you. Yesterday's 1.5m swell was very testing!

Then yesterday I went off for another whale watching trip yesterday with a friend from FLickr, (again withaquaticbluecharters.com.au/), and we had 5 whales come in so close to the boat my lens was too long! They went under us several times, it was just fantastic to see these huge creatures - bigger than the boat - carefully coming up next to us. I'm not sure who was watching who! I hadn't seen spy hopping before, they were definitely as curious about us as we were about them. I suspect we may be their entertainment.
