We went to Point Reyes, but we didn't see any whales although it is the whales' migration season. We did see elephant seals, and a very shy man with a slight stutter who was was a researcher told us they swim for 7000 miles to get to where they give birth, then they don't eat for a month while the pups are nursing. As soon as the pups are weaned, they head back North. Let me tell you, we were looking at about 400 semi-comatose mammals with just an occasional twitch of a fin are a wobbly head raised to look around. When on the move, it's theorized that they sleep when they dive - think about that.
I've been asked about the scale of the paper figures I shoot- can you see Captain Ahab on the right?
