[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This minke whale seem to enjoy following our ship, this was taken as a snow squall passes through. Not really familiar with this amazing creature actually the first time I heard of this whale is when i went to Antarctica, if anyone can best describe them I will edit this note.

Well, Gil, I do not no anything about that whale. I never saw.
But your photo is very interesting for it subject and for the quality of it, and it will be easy for the experts to identify that squale. TFS.

Wow, amazing shot, Gil. A treat to see one of these in real life in the wild, and at such close range. More info on minke whales can be found here. Thanks for sharing this great capture. : )

Nunca me imaginé que las ballenas minke tuvieran ese color gis amarillento. Hace mas linda la foto la nevada que está cayendo.
Pienso informarte en el futuro para que completes tu nota.
