And you go diving with these in the water? No thanks, call me chicken but I will rather take my lions as I know they do not climb trees as well as I do. LOL!!

Wow, that's precious! I've never seen one! Once I saw dolphins, though, and those are graceful animals!
God bless you!

It's so exciting to see whales. Thanks for showing these wonderful close-ups. I've seen a few whales at a distance, and even that was so unbelievably exciting. One was a humpback with her calf.

These are great photos of an amazing experience. We love to whales, which can sometimes be seen swimming by right from the balcony of our condo.

Awesome! so cool that you got to see them so close! I saw 5-6 whales the other day off the coast..usually they are so far away you need binos, but these guys were swimming closer than usual. There was at least one humpback, not sure of the others though.

Great pics! I saw some whales in Alaska, but they were not so close. How exciting to be so close to them.
