Amazing. Hubby and I had the best whale experience in Alaska but did not see the bubble feeding. L/F They were breaching.

Artist's Description

This is a co-operative feeding behavior of Humpback whales that is seen in very few places. We are lucky to have groups of whales in our area that have learned this unique method of feeding. The humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) is a species of baleen whale. One of the larger rorqual species, adults range in length from 12�16 metres (39�52 ft) and weigh approximately 36,000 kilograms (79,000 lb).

About Robert Bales

I am a retired teacher, coach and athletic director. While my wife, Judy, and I were teaching she had a photo studio, and I had a dark room where I did black and white and color. Some was for the studio while most of it was just a hobby. When we retired in 2000, we sold our house in Eastern Washington and moved onto our boat, Last Class, and our motorhome.

Over our 50 years of marriage, we have always had an interest in photography and both of us enjoy taking the photos for this site. I am heading to Yuma for the winter so I will off line some of the time for 3...
