The bird in the lower portion of the photo.
Pelagic trip out of Monterey. Location approximate.
Just in case anyone is interested / can make a fluke ID.
Numerous great looks at humpbacks, but the blues and Risso's remained elusive.
Was seen in the proximity of another Leatherback. Seen by Blue Ocean Whale Watch www.blueoceanwhalewatch.com/
I love the Monterey Bay Aquarium! With my mom visiting and her never having been to an aquarium I thought this to be a perfect Cali sight seeing venture. She (mom) loved that you could see the otters up close in the tank, but right outside the door and a couple yards off there were free otters in their natural habitat.
