Competition pod of humpback whales 1-11-15

In the image below, one whales head is passing over the other's back.

Another head but in process below:

Good show.

This group would surface and then disappear for a while. I never knew if I would be in range with the drone or

have enough time to get over them for any reasonable video. I finally gave it a go and unfortunately when they surfaced

they were a good ways off and headed away and into the sun. Attempting to catch up with the drone and then follow

driving the boat while flying the drone was a challenge that left me wishing I had been more up to it. I can only imagine

how great it would have been to have been over them and in view of the drone for some of the action I saw from the boat.

The whale behind was in hot pursuit, blowing bubbles and intent on climbing over the other.
