Humpback Whale diving, off Tiverton, Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia.

This picture was taken from a Zodiac inflatable boat which was smaller than the whale - it was quite exhilarating to see the whale so close!

The growths on the tail are organisms that feed on dead skin and apparently cause the whale no harm.

Please view full size.
