Photographer's Note

While on assignment for a I came across what appears to be a lucky shot. Actually, it takes a lot of time to get this kind of imagery. Whale tails, or flukes, that flip up briefly like this, as you probably already know, indicate the mammal is diving down to submerge for about 20-45 minutes - not to be seen again for a while. Also, the Arch in the background is a significant landmark of the Cabo San Lucas area where the waters of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean first meet. Every February the whales congregate to mate and frolic in the warm waters.
