School of fin whales

We sighted a school of more than 100 fin whales (estimate of 2 biologists on board). The fin whale is the second-largest animal after the blue whale and growing up to 27 meters and weighing up to 74 tonnes. 

It was impossible to catch the whole scene, they were everywhere in smaller and larger groups.  

Close to South Georgia, British overseas territory, U.K., February 2015.
