    Humpback whales swimming in the waters off San Luis Obispo, Calif. created an unexpected and incredible photo opportunity for Bill Bouton. The retired college biology professor had set out for a day of snapping bird images when he stumbled on the pod breaching the ocean surface scarily close to kayakers and paddlers. Bouton used a 700mm lens on his Canon EOS 7D to capture the stunning shots.

    Onlookers try and get close to capture pictures of a feeding humpback whale in the waters of San Luis Obispo, California. Boaters and kayakers in the waters had cameras of their own poised to take pictures, fearlessly advancing toward the hungry animals, typically from 39–52 ft in length with an average weight of around 79,000 lb. They only feed in the summer and leave off the reserves stored in their bodies during the winter months. via

The Humpback Whale, (Megaptera novaeangliae) is a species of baleen whale. One of the largest rorqual species, adults range in length from 12-16 metres (39-52 ft) and weigh approximately 36,000 kilograms (79,000 Ib).

The Beluga Whale also called The White Whale can mostly be found in Artic waters and become their brilliant white color around 5 yrs. of age. They are considered a smallish whale between 13-20' long and live 35-50 yrs. in the wild. They should never be kept in captivity.... it is inhumane and unjust. All whales should have the roam of the ocean!
