Wow... that certainly tops my recent and now somewhat puny Dolphin efforts...

How close were you? or is this heavily cropped.

Original Poster
cropped in about two thirds...taken with 70-200 mm at 200...the big guys didnt come real close to the boat...there was a yearling that came close and you could fill the frame in the 70 to 130 mm range...

Really nice capture! I know it takes a lot of patience and perfect timing to get a shot like this.

I went on two whale watching boat trips and never did capture anything like this. Great!
