[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On the same trip from Puerto Lopez to Isla de la Plata where we could see the playing humpback whales. It was looking and predicting when and where they should jump. The first few times when I saw them coming out of the water I was just too awed that I forgot to take pictures. That's why I only have one. The rest are in my head - sorry I can't share them... Although they are regularly spotted from mid-June to October it seems they are most playfull and of July and August. So we were lucky. Yesterday I put already a tail, now a jump, maybe another tail will come later. It is the original - analog - only framed.

Superbe photo.
Tu as eu de bons reflexes, on ne sait jamais d'ou elles vont surguir.

Awesome shot of this breech Liesbeth. Excellent timing. What an amazing mammal. How they manage to lift that great weight out of the sea is amazing. Nice shot. Thanks

  • Great

Very nice breeching Humpback! I am still waiting for the opportunity to get one like this and so far only get the tail flute!
