Whale-jumping Marlin

ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR

Two Humpback Whales I was photographing submerged. This very surprised Marlin strayed into their path, exploded from the water and tail-walked straight towards my boat. I swung the camera around and managed to get off four frames. It was difficult shooting straight into the light.
