This little cardinal decided to join me for breakfast on my Lahaina balcony one morning!
Humpback shows it's tail fluke!
This humpback put on quite a display!
This humpback was slapping it's tail against the water. Taken off the Maui west shore.
Humpback lobtailing of the Maui west shore
Going under water
Once you see the tail, the whale is under water for about 10 min.
There she blows!
We kept up with these two humpbacks for quite a while. Spectacular to see!
That's all folks...
You can see the barnacles on it's tail.
Humpback heading straight toward us
Fortunately, it swam under the boat....
Another humpback going under water.
Another humpback coming straight toward us...and then swam under our boat.
Marine biologists can distinguish individual whales by the markings under their tail.
Humpbacks up close
This shot isn't cropped...we were that close!
Tail of two whales (sorry...couldn't resist)
These two humpbacks were putting on a nice show for us. Managed to get both of their tails in the air at the same time.
This whale was rolling in the water showing it's long pectoral fin along with it's tail.

Kite Surfer at Paia
This was taken outside Big Mama's Fish House in Paia, HI. I had hoped to see some wind surfers, but as you can see, the conditions were a bit rough - there was only this one lone kite surfer.
Iao Valley State Park river
Long exposure of the river flowing over the rocks
Taken at Honokowai beach park. I love how the lighting combined with the depth of the ocean creates lines of beautiful color.
