This morning stretch of a humpback crosses to the vast domains of air and sea. She is likely not waving to the whale watchers, but may be signaling to other whales: "I am here," in this case by sound, not gesture as she slaps the water or perhaps she is simply taking morning exercise.

I have always found the unique idiosyncrasies of ocean denizens fascinating, from tiny sea horses gripping a plant stem with their tails to a leviathan like the humpback slapping a flipper to signal or simply express emotions. Getting in close enough to see the folds of skin and speckles of color, Paul, is a real treat, so thank you for the opportunity to do so! We own four Wilderness Pungo kayaks, 12-footers meant for casual lake and river paddling, and I have taken to naming them. My wife has a blend of red, yellow, and orange in hers: The Mango Slice. I have a bright yellow kayak: The Banana. The name for our neon green one still eludes me (The Gecko? Kiwi? Honeydew?), but I think you have just given me the name of our fourth boat, a black, gray, and white speckled one, looking a lot like that spot on the fin here, near the ^armpit(?). I will now christen it The Humpback.

Happy Trails.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

Great and amazing action shot, Paul. It's like you've a ride on its back, a bareback ride however, 😁 ! My amazement is because you were able to capture this huge animal that near.

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.
