Topics I've Started

Short fin pilot whales

01 October 2014 - 06:58 AM

Hello all!

 

After a long time of trying to obtain a permit to photograph cetaceans in the Canary Islands, my friends at www.oceanografica.com made it possible after signing a collaboration agreement to obtain imagery for them to use. Since then, I have been able to go out a couple of times and see 5 of the 30 registered species of cetaceans in the islands... and I will try to go as many times as possible in the near future. This topic is dedicated to the short fin pilot whales, Globicephala macrorhynchus, of which a family lives permanently here a couple miles off shore where they can hunt cephalopods in the deep  ocean (around 1000m-3000ft).

Images are taken without strobes and great effort, as they don´t exactly wait for the photographer to arrive  :P
