Eyre and Kiat have their first encounter with a humpback calf

Thursday 8 Sepember -Today I headed out with the first of my Whaleswim Photo groups for 2011, here amongst the beautiful Vava’u island group, in the Kingdom of Tonga.

While the weather may not have been our best friend today, close-by E’uiki Island we were introduced to a friendly calf, her mum and escort… Kiat and Eyre got their first close-encounter of the baby whale kind.

Oh, and that’s my first use of the Canon EF 8-15mm f4L Fisheye on the 7D. I think I’m going to love it!
