Impromptu Whale Watching

Tuesday at around 11:30 I got a call from Jayleen with an invitation to join her on her boat to take in the local sights for a whale-watch adventure. Not one to turn down a chance to get out on the water and spend some quality time with good people, I made it work with my office and sped out the door to run home for a camera before heading to Auke Bay.

The whales were fairly active but often elusive and scatter, but I had the most fun watching the sea lions anyhow. They always seemed intrigued with the boats and would at times pop up fairly close to take a look. Here are a few keepers from the day – you can see the rest here:

This is what a 300mm with a 2x telextender on a DX body looks like... CLOSE!
