Another "friendly" whale

For the second time this year we've had a “friendly” humpback whale approach our boat very closely and spend some time swimming underneath and around us. This time the whale actually surfaced right underneath our bow and was so close we could have touched it. What was so amazing was the control this huge animal had over its body. It never actually touched our boat although it was only inches away.

This is what happens when you have a zoom lens on your camera and a whale surfaces right next to your boat...this is the dorsal fin filling the entire frame of the photo

We got some nice underwater footage of the whale "spy-hopping" near us. Keep in mind the wide-angle lens on our GoPro makes this whale look farther away than it actually was!
