Pacific Ocean. Whales and their enemies
• Pacific Ocean. Whales and their enemies
I was the first time in my life saw orcas and whales. It is incredibly majestic guys. you would know how zealously we peered into the lead surface of the ocean, looking out for whales! Perhaps all eyes to tears rubbed. And when there was a cry - "whales !!!" Fortunately there was no limit ...
It is an incredible sight when the water shows the fin whale. Insanely nice and gracefully it slips over the surface and leaves the water.
If I'm not mistaken, it seemed to us a couple of humpback whales (humpback). They met us somewhere on the half way to the Bay of Russian.
When the whales were diving, we peered into the water, trying to understand where they come up. And in parallel we filmed all that comes to hand. That's a dead end caught)
Again whale! This time, his tail) It was like a real hunt - standing with camera at the ready, and almost seemed only whale - just pressed the button
Something I had planned to withdraw - against the backdrop of the whales "home" volcanoes - Avacha and Koryak. And then, and with the water column. class)
Here is one of them showed hovst with white spots. This is obviously an older individual in the pair.
Finally, both the whale appeared above the water at the same time. And we have to go further, to the sea lions, fishing, ear ...
And on the way back, the fate has presented us a gift - a killer whale! Actually everything was started for them and whales) doubly pleased that the first I saw them - far away on the horizon. Our captain said that killer whales in the late afternoon orcas are held closer to shore in search of food.
It should of course remove the orca jumping out of the water. But this happens only during the mating season. And they spring. But just to see the killer whale, a few meters from the nose of the ship - a great happiness for us)
Beauty showed his white flank) This whale is not photoshop)
This is an amazing animal, incredibly beautiful and graceful!
Killer whales also sailed in pairs. I wonder who they are to each other? Family, or some other kind of relationship?
Here they are - my favorite picture with a couple. Appeared at the same time on the water
Close-up. The first shooting experience has shown that the lens should have a quick focusing system, and the photographer strong hands and sharp eyes. The turbulence is very hard just to get the lens in the right direction. But still from time to time you need to hold on to the boat, or fly away))
But it was very, very cool .. Impression - for life ... In parting, we showed again the familiar pair of whales. said goodbye ..
