Photo Plus - - Inspirations -

The fe­male hump­back whale re­peat­edly cruised past Wade, each pass slow and mea­sured – once so close that he could have touched her. ‘With a close-up por­trait, I wanted to cap­ture some­thing of the in­ten­sity of her look and her in­tel­li­gence,’ says Wade. Once she had checked him out and was sat­is­fied that he was harm­less, she al­lowed her calf to come closer so that it could sat­isfy its own cu­rios­ity.
