As promised, here's the photo of a Blue Whale Craig Tooley took from an airplane last year.
And here's another Blue Whale Craig photographed several years ago.
The world's largest creature, Blue Whales are a rare sighting. They have been seen off the Mendonoma Coast this year, which is early. It signifies the abundance of food for these giants of the sea.
Thanks to Craig for allowing me to share these photos here. You can see more whale photography on Craig's web site: http://ruffimage.com/
