Got to see a lunge feeding humpback whale, that I don’t think I’ve seen before (ID’d as BCYuk2013#3 “Slits”) , on my first day out on the water with my new lens! Great Start!!

This humpback, who I think may be a juvenile (wasn’t little but wasn’t huge, maybe a few years old) lunged so close to the boat that my new camera was mostly too big… BUT LOOK AT THAT FISH!!!

This California Sea Lion was swimming right beside the Humpback, likely catching some of the fish missed by the humpback
