The photo was taken at the entrance to Katlian Bay. The whale is coming up to scoop up a mouthful of herring. The kayaker is a local Sitka Dentist. The whale's mouth is fully open with the bottom half under the boat by Mark Tennant.
someday, i will see this. and i will be on a pretty boat with a bubbly drink in my hand. or ill be on the back of a lobster boat, on the rare occasion humpbacks are in the bay and ill have a bud light in my hand. either works for me.

Migaloo, the only known all white humpback whale, was photographed by jenny dean (first, third photos) in the great barrier reef. though often described as albino, migaloo has brown eyes and is more likely leucistic or hypopigmented.
