Comments:
at least three Humpback whales, a pair and a single. The pair of whales came very close to shore in Aspen Cove, while the single whale stayed out in the centre of the sound. The two that came in close to shore were so close that i had to reduce zoom while photographing them. One even eliminated waste while on the surface. I have far more photos than i can post here. in two different tail photos, you can clearly see that there are two different whales represented.
