I went whale watching last week at Cape Ann. I love, love this place. Here are some whale pics.

The seagulls actually steal the fish from the whale's mouth. I was actually informed by the bird watchers on my trip that there isn't such thing as bird called as a seagull. And they were upset that the book "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" started the trend for call Gulls, Seagulls. There are different types of Gulls such as the Ring Gilled Gull and the Great Black-backed Gull.




This is a Humpback whale feeding.

WONDERFUL pictures, Comet! What kind of boat were you on and how close did you get to the whale? I know there are regulations on the proximity (as there should be). The pictures are just so clear!

Anny, here is the website for tour I took. We did get up pretty close to the whales but believe it or not there were boats that were even closer.
