Beauty of the sea

Still overwhelmed by the sudden encounter of a large (around 7-8 meters long) female humpback whale and her calf. They played around our boat for 3-4 minutes before they took off underwater. Unbelievable creatures, they seem so harmonic and peaceful in their slow motion, their steady breathing through the blowholes and the surreal size of their beautiful bodies. Next time I'll try have a look at them from underneath the surface.
