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 dailymail.co.uk
