Fin whale, (and not the whole thing!)

This photo was taken with the panoramic setting of my camera--you can see the distance between
the rostrum, visible under water, and the dorsal fin above the surface on the left.  And, of course, the
whale goes on from there!  The pectoral fin is also visible under water.  This whale whale was probably
at least sixty or seventy feet long.
