Whale Tail

Whale Tail - 2013 © Christopher MartinCanon 5DIII + 70-200mm f/4 lens: 1/4000 of a second at f/11 on ISO 400

Water sprays off a whale’s tail as it begins a dive in the Pacific Ocean west of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.  This Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) was very active with some great tail lifts and breaches before settling into a steady swim just under the surface which we used as our queue to part company.  It is amazing just to see them and for it share some of its out of the water action was very fun to watch.
