Beluga Whale

SEA_Beluga.jpg

The elusive beluga whale seldom seen or photographed underwater. These whales are frequently known as the "canaries of the sea" because of the high-pitched sounds they use to communicate with each other and also, found only in the cold arctic waters. This one I photographed in the Kachemak Bay, Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. Shot with a Leica R7.  2.8 - 19 mm lens in a customized underwater housing.
