Humbpack whales - Réunion island - are bloody beautiful. Their sheer size and texture is so surreal it seems digitalised. Seeing two of them together, side by side, it's difficult to imagine how so much matter could exist in one view.
Another stunning whale image by the talented Darren Jew - 2012 Canon / AIPP Australian Science, Environment and Nature Photographer of the Year. I would love to join in on one of his 'photography enthusiasts' whale swim tours in Tonga!
