|Taken on a Whale watching trip out of Tofino BC. Grey whales migrate yearly from California to Alaska. This one had stopped off the coast of Vancouver Island to feed. This is a Grey Whale taking a dive. They dive to the sandy bottom and scoop up a mouthful of sand. They then sift the sand thru their balleen (spaghetti like teeth). What is left after they sift the sand out are krill, mollusks and tube worms.|

What a nice and unexpected capture! Very good image Blair. I'll be you were pleased with it as well. I shall pass the image on to others. I really enjoy these creatures.
Great colors, nice crop, and an amazing capture! I'm surprised how sharp it is at 1/250.
