Blue whale diving for Krill

The biggest animal ever to live on our planet - the Blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) rarely flukes up in the Azores. This one did it and nicely framed the Ilheus da Madalena for me. The two rocks in the background - the Ilheus - are the two islets just outside Madalena harbour.
