This photograph couldn’t have turned out better if I’d sat down with the whales themselves and choreographed all their moves for them! The five members of this competition pod have formed a neat little conga-line trailing behind the female (at the far right end of the conga line). This was the most orderly competition pod I’ve seen in more than 10 years of whale watching!
