Have I mentioned that taking decent shots of whales by the boat is not hard?

What few birds we had (scarcely a dozen Great Shearwater, two Gannets, three Laughing Gulls, a Common Tern, a couple Cory's Shearwater, the usual gulls, and about a hundred Wilson's Storm Petrel) were maddeningly hard to photograph, as no one was feeding. I got off with a couple half-way decent exceptions out of nearly 400 shots (half of them attempts to catch a WISP in flight). It was my first pelagic with a longer lens, so a learning experience.
