Beth and I were looking at the pictures we took while on the whale watch after we got home. I don't know why I had such trouble with the movies, tho gettng a clear shot was a prob. one movie tracks a nearby humpback but just as it started to flip fluke and dive, the shot loses the beastie, scans the sky, reviews some of the passengers and ends up pointed toward the deck. we both just yelled NO!!! in a pleading tone towards the computer screen, to no avail. I think it was a situation in which I had to hold the camera over my head, people being in front of me at the rail. luckily, I caught one perfect fluke wave and dive. always been interested in whales. the whale watchers identified the humpbacks by name, but not the finback or minke.
