Blue whale at the coast of Sri Lanka

In this week’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge, we’re challenging bloggers to photograph what they feel best represents the theme Wildlife!

We saw this wonderful sight at the coast of Sri Lanka. One rarely gets to see a blue whale so close. We were told to be quiet  and having listened to the captains orders;  the whale came to check out our boat.  It swam around and under our boat, so we were able to see it up and close –  It was impressive!


I’m participating in the LetsBeWild.com Wild Weekly Photo ChallengeThis week’s Challenge is: Wildlife

    Impressive, indeed! I went whale watching outside Vancouver Island, Canada. They came pretty close to the boat and wow, impressive. You captured a beautiful set of photos.
