When a sly whale came up just behind their boat while they were looking the other way, a party of whale watchers almost missed out on a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
They were all looking in the other direction, waiting for a whale sighting with their cameras ready, and they almost missed the incredible encounter just behind them.
Thankfully, one of the party members turned around just in time to see the massive whale, which was only a few feet away, before it vanished back into the water.
The boat’s jubilation after capturing the incredible encounter may be seen.
These images were taken from a boat nearby, showing the spectacular spectacle that was taking place.
The whale “slowly and stealthily pushed her head up above the water to look around,” according to Smith, who was on the boat.
I was a few hundred feet away on another panga and recorded the moment just as everyone realized she was so close.”
Eric J Smith, a 49-year-old photographer from Los Angeles, was on the boat behind and captured the photos of the near-miss.
“She gently and quietly raised her head above the water to survey the scene; I was in another panga a few hundred feet away and recorded the event just as everyone realized she was so close.”
“Whale photography requires a lot of luck, but the key is to stay attentive and ready at all times.
