    This was a photo I took while in Antarctica. Our guide had said that the previous week, there was a minke whale that popped up to say hello. He took us to the same spot and within less than 10 minutes, this gorgeous minke whale popped up. He radioed the other zodiacs, but we were the only group who saw this guy. Minke whales are curious creatures, but he only popped up once. It was so fast that I only had time to take this one photograph!

    I loved this picture the moment I saw it and I think the moment you talk about in your caption is great. The water is so placid, which I find amazing when I think about how gently this large creature must have surfaced. It's the eye, though, that grabbed me. You used the word curious and that's what I feel from your picture.
