Breaching gray whale

The whale(s) breached over a dozen times! Sometimes just a side flipper or a tail, but many times it was the entire body way up in the air. Without much of a zoom my camera was hopeless, and the viewfinder was too dark to see anything before the big splash. Here is a way-zoomed-in crop of a splashdown. That sailboat was treated to an amazing display.
