Whale Breach

After watching this whale for several minutes, surfacing to blow and slap its flipper, it breached in front of me - and surprised everyone on the boat. I had my camera with my 100-400mm zoom lens at about 300mm, held at my waist, but finger on the shutter button. In the split second it was above the water, I raised my camera to my eye and had time to get only one shot of it - and forgot to pull back on the zoom! This was the resulting image
