The weekly photo challenge prompt from the WordPress daily post this week was Graceful. As can be seen from the contributions of other bloggers, I am not alone in attributing grace to the wildlife of the world. For this week I chose pictures of a humpback whale from a whale-watching trip south of Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Despite not being able to see most of the whale, and despite my shotty quickly-done photo editing, I am still able to recall how smooth and soft the whale movement seemed on that day. It is a shame that the pictures do not relay the time scale of the whale dive or the size of the animals, because it is the combination of size and grace that makes the whales so impressive.
