Last Thursday Allen Vinson had his camera in hand when he and Craig Gilliland spotted a huge spout.
Then a second whale appeared.
I wonder if this might be a mother/calf pair. The Blue Whales were quite a ways out - Allen was using his long lens to get these photos. Here are a few more looks.
This last photo shows you what Allen and Craig were seeing from the bluffs. This is the time of year we are more likely to see a Blue Whale, the largest creature on earth. Very much endangered still, as their numbers have been slow to increase after whaling was stopped.
It's a wonderful sighting, that's for sure. And two Minke Whales were spotted earlier the same day.
Thanks to Allen for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
