Humpback Whale breaching off Ile Sainte Marie

Despite seeing some absolutely spectacular acrobatics, I failed miserably to catch any on film...

This capture was more to do with the involuntary jerk I experienced at the excitment seeing this huge creature suddenly breach the ocean, than any kind of superhero reaction speeds!!
