A whale gives us a good look in the swimming pool-like conditions we had last week. One of the photographers below took the photo...

Three Nikon D series cameras firing away so we can make our fluke IDs-- it's called 3D. Elsa, right is a professional already! She also loads the photos onto the computer and does the Adobe Photoshop work to enhance the fluke images when we get home so I can make dinner

The female above was surrounded by several other whales two days in a row. 0889 is also known as Etcetera and is a Bermuda re-sighting. We photographed her almost on the same day, 15th of April 2012 and the 9th and 10th of April 2013. We had several other re-sightings this week to previous years in Bermuda. Etcetera is a Gulf of Maine whale first ID'ed in 1983

Only if the whales were relaxed and curious and came to our stationary boat, we'd ID them underwater
