Any of various aquatic, chiefly marine mammals of the order Cetacea, including the whales, dolphins, and porpoises, characterized by a nearly hairless body, anterior limbs modified into broad flippers, vestigial posterior limbs, and a flat notched tail.

Came across this Humpback Whale on my way back from Quatsino with the Landing Craft several days ago. Though not seen on a regular basis in this area they are known to make an appearance from time to time.

Had time permited I would like to have spent more time photographing this big fellow, regretably I was pressed for time and had to settle for a quick drive by shooting... Photos of opportunity!


  1. What a great opportunity to be able to get a pic of this magnificent Cetacean! Sure glad you had your camera with you.

    When I clicked on pic to enlarge, noticed something hanging off the right side of its tail. Wonder what this is?

    Nice shots of Opportunity On the Fly!
