    This humpback was lunging unusally high. The pleats are distended and hold several hundred gallons of seawater. The pink in the crevasses of the pleats is blood from lots of stretching activity. (IOW, he's been eating well in the last few hours!)

    Wow, and we complain about stretch marks? Nice shot; love the pink-on-gray scheme.

    Wonderful shot. I'm assuming this was from a whale watch trip. Where along the coast was this taken?
  7. Beautiful!!!!!!!! Where did you go out of? I'm hoping to get up to Gloucester soon, supposed to be nice whale watching up there! :smile:

    Thanks, all. I'd rather not have the grey skies, the trip this past Tues was great, sunny and blue skies and water.
    This was from the Stellwagen Bank area off the coast of MA. I was on a boat out of Gloucester. Lately, there has been some very good action at the NW corner, just 15 miles outside Gloucester harbor. Looks like a good year!!!!

    Anyone want to join me, I go often, drop me a PM or e-mail. I'm using Capt Bill & Sons lately, tics are about $41, AM trips are less crowded.
  9. What a fantastic shot! More, please! That must be a fantastic experience and to nail it with the camera!
  10. I would LOVE to go, have been wanting to get out on one since about Feb. I've lived here almost all my life and still never been on a whale-watching tour! :redface:
