Feeding Humpbacks

By philgood
Four humpback Whales lunge feeding, huge expanding mouths scoop up the small anchovies, and filter them from the sea water through the bristles from the top part of the mouth.
The Whale on the left you can see a few fish escaping.

Thank you very much Ron, yes it was fantastic to see these magnificent creature up close, and to see so many. One day seeing 30-40 whales.
