A Valentine's Day MUGGING!

February 14, 2007
Last year on Valentine's Day I had the treat of a lifetime as I watched Orcas kill and eat a minke whale in Antarctica (see Feb 2006 blog). I didn't think it could ever get much better, but this year the treat was just as sweet. Two and then later three sub-adult whales decided to spend a good part of the morning by surrounding me and totally interacting with the boat. I didn't even get my toes wet as I simply held the housing over the side and glimpsed this incredible ballet through the lens of my camera. Only upon reviewing the images afterwards did I really know how special the morning had been. How sweet it is!
