Breaching Humpback Whale

ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR

From the whale-watching boat, I saw lots of activity and breaching from the Whales on this particular day. This individual breached in front of me and I was able to also capture the ‘curtain’ of water that was created by the splash. An exhilarating moment indeed!
