Gray Whales
Photographer: Douglas Croft
Location: Big Sur, CA
Story: 
A gray whale mother escorts her calf northward from the Baja lagoon where it was born, to feeding grounds in Alaska. We had a bird's eye view from our vantage point on the cliffs of Big Sur. Amazing to see them gliding just beneath the surface so close to shore.
