Rare view of a blue whale raising its tail during a dive  Blue whales are so large that you only very rarely see their tail during a dive, unlike the humpback whales that routinely raise their tails when diving.  Off Isla Carmen, Sea of Cortez    Its a fun challenge trying to get good photos of sea mammals since where and when they surface is quite unpredictable.  Sometimes, when the water conditions are calm, you can see them underwater, just before they surface, as a distortion on the surface of the water - that results in the best shots.   A collage of the sequence of the tail raise can be seen here, along with some blue whale, humpback whale and dolphin shots: http://goo.gl/seZWws  30/07/14 www.allenfotowild.com
