SOUTH AFRICA ~Southern Right Whale~

It is probably a cliche dream of me, hoping to see this creatures in the wild .
But after reading this....
It is truly an inconsistency in nature that one of the largest of mammals in our oceans are so graceful and gentle - totally trusting of the human beings floating on their crystal clear watery domain. The Humpback whales are aware of our presence, they glide effortlessly around us, with a gentleness of knowing we are fragile in comparison and we are there out of wonder and respect of their size, their graciousness and allowing their new born calves within a few metres of us, there is a 'stillness' as they approach you that goes way beyond words. . . . .
Their song is ancient and resounds through all your senses leaving you with a peacefulness that is both inward and outward.
No words will ever describe being with these majestic creatures but you know that your life will never be the same again. . . . .

Southern Right whales are 14-18meters long. They migrate from cold waters around the Southern Ocean towards the warmer and safer South coast of Southern Africa and will give birth to the calf in August before returning home in December.
