Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

We saw this wonderful sight at the coast of Sri Lanka. One rarely gets to see a blue whale so close. We were told to be quiet  and having listened to the captains orders;  the whale came to check out our boat.  It swam around and under our boat, so we were able to see it up and close –  It was impressive!
