RARE, good long shot, of a blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) underwater, the camera is below and looking up at the blue whale passing overhead, near the surface of the ocean. The water is thick with krill and nutrients, see the entire whale passing through the cloud of krill (Euphausia pacifica) and natural sun rays all around. The whale’s mouth is agape as it screens krill from the water with its baleen. The whale surfaces for a breath. (The jellyfish-like object floating past is a salp or salpa or salpae, a planktic tunicate.) Nice sunlight on the whale’s tail flukes as it swims out of sight, in the layer of krill. Excellent pink color of krill. Summer. Good long shot, pretty blue water, good natural sunlight on all subjects. The ocean surface can be seen from below. Baleen whale feeding on krill. Marine mammal. Plankton. North America West Coast.
