Notes

I shot this picture at ISO 640; F 8; 1/250 sec.

Description

This picture was taken while snorkeling with humpback whales in their breeding and calving grounds in the Dominican Republic. We were watching the mother sleep on the surface at a respectful distance, so as not to disturb her, when the calf swam between us. I took this image as he looked straight at us and extended his flipper to within inches of us. He held this position for the longest time, eyeing us with curiosity.
