This is one of several breaches this group of three whales did in a 10 minute span. I believe this is either the mother whale showing her calf how to do a proper breach or a sub-adult (perhaps last year's calf) showing off. This is the most spectacular of the ones I captured that day. Mahalo to the whales for the show!

|Focal length:||280 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/3999 sec|
|Notes:||Shot in RAW in burst mode (5fps), straightened the photo (it was rocking boat) and slightly cropped it for composition. No CPL on lens, only a UV filter. Used Aperture mode and adjusted ISO (between 400 and 1600) to give me a shutter speed between 1/2000 and 1/4000 (that seems to work best for this camera/lens combo. Center-weighted exposure and center point focusing.|
