Friendly grey whales, Baja Cal­i­for­nia, Mex­ico

Charles Kin­sey “San Ig­na­cio La­goon is a mag­i­cal place as it’s one of the few places where you can in­ter­act with wild an­i­mals on their terms. Grey whales and their calves stop here be­fore mi­grat­ing to Alaska.

They’re very cu­ri­ous crea­tures and often ap­proach small boats – the whale calves in par­tic­u­lar seem to en­joy be­ing splashed, touched and stroked; their skin feels like soft leather.

I used my wa­ter­proof cam­era with its wide-an­gle lens to catch the mo­ment when one of them – in a de­cid­edly re­laxed mood – opened its mouth and ex­posed its baleen. This was a truly thrilling en­counter!”
