Gray Whales of San Ignacio Lagoon, Baja California, Mexico 2023
A very special journey to the birthplace of all North American Gray Whales...half way down the Baja Peninsula on the Pacific side is the bio reserve of San Ignacio Lagoon. This large but shallow lagoon is host to the whales for purposes of mating, calving, feeding, and for a short period of time interacting with humans in late Winter. It was beyond a privilege to spend time with these curious and friendly mammals. They blow frequently so I did spend a lot of the time cleaning my lenses. Well worth it.
