An excellent motion shot, Jenny, in what wasn't exactly calm waters. You show great patience in when you hit the shutter button especially if you were going down when the whale was coming up.

Debra Plett

Great action capture Jenny, love the water trails and touch of turquoise.

Jane LeBlanc

Great capture, Jenny. I love the feeling of movement. Great focus, too, with so much fast motion.

The Humpie was actually too close !!! Always complaining !! I do thank you.

Humpback Whale's pectoral fins are 5 meters (16 feet) long... one third of their body length. They enjoy lifting them out and slapping the water.
