Our Gray Whale

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Our Gray Whale
Our Gray Whale
San Ignacio Lagoon, Mexico! This gray whale spent over an hour between our two little boats, moving back and forth to play, be touched and kissed by all of us. It was an unbelievable experience.

Wonderful shot, Karen! I hope you are able to visit the Mission San Ignacio while your there. This oasis in the Baja desert is special to me as well.

This is my favorite - it's very well captured - great detail in the whale and wonderful expressions! Whales are so intelligent and have such amazing societies and family life - it certainly seems they are as fascinated with us and we are with them!

Thank you for visiting and leaving good words. Yes, it was a privileged adventure. We did visit the Mission, salt flats and saw six hours of landscape while driving to the lagoon.
