Ogasawara: sperm whale / underwater image gallery

A gallery of sperm whale images and underwater photography from the Wetpixel sperm whale expedition to the Ogasawara Islands, Japan during October 8-18, 2009. Subjects include sperm whales (*Physeter macrocephalus*), Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (*Tursiops aduncus*), Pantropical spotted dolphin (*Stenella attenuata*), and carcass bits of some sort of large pelagic octopus and an unidentified giant squid.

This gallery supplements my [trip report](/journal/2009/10/19/trip-report-sperm-whale-expedition-to-ogasawara-japan/).
