And Christmas just keeps coming this year with a second Pleasure Island whale sighting. If you recall from last week, there were multiple accounts of a whale spotted from Carolina Beach down towards Kure Beach.
This morning I received an email from Jeff Davis about a second whale sighting. He explains that yesterday afternoon, he and his son were driving on Fort Fisher when they spotted a whale near the end of the allowed driving area. The whale, which was swimming with dolphins, was approximately 200 to 300 yards off shore.
Here a few of the images that he captured with his Nikon D7000. He was using a 200mm lens with a 1.7 teleconverter and he "heavily" cropped the photos to pull in the image.
I really appreciate him sharing his story and fantastic photos with the blog. To view his other six photos, go here.
