That's a great picture though, of the humpback breaching. I'd of been looking all over (circling), shame that they missed this moment.!! Thank you, Cher for this.

I saw one just like that last month,unfortunately through binoculars
never wished so hard for a real camera with a telephoto lens.
Thanks Cher

Aw... Darn it... They missed the sighting...

Maybe the watchers got wet from the big splash and wave after the Humpback went back into the waters. lol...

Funny photo of a "miss it" event.

Ty, Cher.

you're with the camera already focused, ready to take the shoot of the year, waiting for the animal that definitely should be the center of your target and instead he comes suddenly from somewhere else, you try to take the picture anyway and instead you take a close up photo of the wool hat of another tourist, this is a classic
ahahahahah!!!! happened

WOW, outstanding photo. Frankly, kinda happy myself that they looked the wrong way, maybe next time they won't pay for just a photograph. Leave these whales in peace.
