It's high time I begin a public blog! For starters, this is where I can post photos and wildlife sightings to share with friends and family. Here are a couple of photos of a Dall's porpoise I took off the Western Prince. During the last week or so we have had a lot of "players", or porpoises bow-riding on the boat. They're an awesome black-and-white porpoise about 6-8 feet long, and are famous for being the fastest marine mammal in the ocean. The first photo is my favorite "artsy" shot, of a porpoise just coming to the surface. You can see bubbles above its blowhole as it begins to exhale underwater. The second shot shows you a porpoise kicking up a "rooster tail", or a splash behind him while speed swimming. I love this picture because you can see its eye!
