    Ja , I cant complain too much....especially now that the whales are here , we counted a pod of 7 / 8 day before yesterday . Lovely breaching & bobbing behavior as well as 2 calves .

    They were a bit far out for decent pics (I only have a 300 mm lens) , but last year they were VERY close...will see what the season comes up with :)
