Great shot! I'm sure most people don't realize how hard it is to be able to get a shot like that. I went on a killer whale watch a couple years ago and we saw so many breaching but you just never knew where or when they would come up so aiming and focusing is difficult.

The photo was taken on a whale watch cruise this year. I'll have to admit that there is a lot of luck in a shot like that. As you have said, there is no indication when and where they will breach.

Must be an ocean thing, Dolphins make me spend time chasing them about the viewfinder too.
