[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Several pods of Bryde's whales have been seen in the Gulf of Thailand, some 10-15 km off shore. They swim around scooping up small fish then raise their head up out of the water to let the water drain out of their mouths before swallowing the catch. Lengths of up to 8 meters.

Hello Sitthivet
Very impressive capture. Thanks for sharing

Hi Sitthivet,

a very super timing, is very lucky.
internal structure of the whale's mouth, the crowd being around the sea birds and if they challenge them .. really a theatrical composition.
As the quality of shots is also very good.
Congratulations, TFS

Best Regards,

Impresionante el detalle de las barbas! Felicidades por la toma.
