The eye of a sperm whale


Scar, a 10-year old male sperm whale (Physeter Macrocephalus) in Dominica
We had incredible encounters today with up to 6 sperm whales at a time. We even met Scar, a personable 10-year old male sperm whale who nearly begs to be rubbed! Photos taken under permit.

There is a lot more to come. I haven't even finished downloading my cards (shot about 20 GB today) -- pulled these out and posted them as I saw them downloading...
