Fin Whale at Cape Cod

After yesterday's Long-finned Pilot Whales off East Lothian, I thought I would post some pictures of the biggest animal that I have seen to date - an incredibly impressive Fin Whale seen at near touching distance on a whale watching trip from P-town, Cape Cod. This animal literally brought tears to my eyes such was the excitement of this unexpected close encounter. One of those real highlight moments that occur occasionally in many years of wildlife watching.

The word awesome is grossly misused but in this case it is totally apt!
What an experience - made all the more annoying by the fact that I missed seeing one from a pelagic trip by deciding not to go!
