I saw this this challenge and thought "I wish" because Whales are seen only once or twice a year here and always way off shore. Later in the day my friend texted me and said someone had seen a Whale near shore. I had my camera so a couple of hours later I figured what the heck and sat at the beach for lunch. I know it's not a pretty picture and will drag my score down but it was just too strange not to submit it.
