\ NOTHING BUT WHALE \ My first Antarctic expedition was truly one for the books! This was one of my favorite moments, seeing a humpback whale breach repeatedly for over an hour near the bow of our ship. At one point I actually had to choose between photographing the breaching whale or orcas. According to one of our naturalists, this was quite a rare sighting so I feel very fortunate to have witnessed it even though my hands froze! #antarcticaordie (at Antarctica)
