Cape Verde pt 3 - whale watching pelagic

Humpback Whales breed in the seas around Cape Verde and as such, the locals organise daily pelagics to witness these huge animals at fairly close quarters.  I was lucky enough to see five including one young, just visible in the fourth image.  With a scope, we could just see them breaching from the shore - quite an amazing sight.  Sadly I didn't see a breach from the catamarran.  The breach image at the bottom of the set was taken by Falli Bira, a local paparazzi who kindly allowed me to show this image.
