Whale Watching in the Fog

Whale watching in the fog in Nova Scotia.
The best whale watching trip thus far was on a foggy day and we had to shut off the boat engine and listen for the whale's breathing. He was very close to us and came up to our boat and put on a show for us for at least 10 minutes.
It was fantastic.
I felt so graced and privileged to have had this great leviathan's attention for a brief moment in his endless ocean days.
We were able to identify this whale as being "Colorado" by the white markings on his tail.
Did you know humpback whales tail markings are equivalent to human fingerprints?
Nova Scotia whale watching rocks!
