Got super lucky last week. Went out whale watching from Moss Landing and the anchovies were plentiful and the humpback whales were lunge feeding. I used my Z9 and a Nikon 70-300mm lens to get some slo-mo video of the whales lunge feeding, something I have been trying to get for several years! Now I need to get a video of a humpback breaching.

The short version of the video:

A longer version with some of the other lunges:

Thanks! Yep, like the one in New Zealand? I think most whales are very aware of their surroundings. Also they are going for the anchovies so none where the boat is.
