Almost all about animals: avoiding animal cruelty, observations about daily life with animals, treks to see animals in the wild, acting to preserve habitat and conserve species, animal photos and more. Also a bit about Idaho and life in Boise.
The next day, when we encountered our second mom and calf, I was getting better at framing photos without really being able to see anything. The deep blue water shows all blue on the screen and even if I tried to frame, there's so few white spots to try and focus on on the whales, and I'm trying to mainly watch the whales vs. get great photos. But still, I managed to capture some images I really like. The first photo is the calf coming up under me to the surface, with mom nearby. Here are some other shots of the calf:
I love the bubbles in this one:
Note the remoras on the underside as the whale dives down. Here are some nice shots of mom and calf together.
It was such a special experience to be able to swim with these animals. How amazing that this huge, gorgeous mother is accepting of a bunch of snorkelers hanging out with her and her baby.
