Whale Mother and Baby

Whale Mother and Baby

Gray Whales (Eschrichtius gibbosus).  These two were feeding outside the mouth of the Klamath River in May, 2010.  The mother came up to spy hop and then the baby (probably about 3-4 months old) came up and rubbed his face against hers.
 

Canon EOS 1V camera and 600 f/4 L IS lens with a 2x teleconverter on a Gitzo tripod with Wimberly head. f/11 at 1/250 sec.  Fuji Provia 100F film, pushed one stop.
