|Pilot Whale - Hawaii 2012|
|Whale in Front - Hawaii 2012|
Hali and Mike got up early in the morning and headed south to a small harbor just outside of
for a whale-watching excursion. Along with several other people they clambered
aboard Cap'n Dan's trusty vessel.
As the boat left the harbor, it immediately met the waves of the open sea. After a moment of unease, Mike realized that he was going to be OK and settled in to wait for pix opportunities (also, he had thoughtfully taken a Bonine upon rising.)
It was getting towards the end of the humpback whale season, and in fact no humpback whales were sighted. But they did come across several pilot whales! Very difficult to frame the photos using the EPL-1's LCD screen, but Mike did his best.
