Breaking wave, fast motion and blur. The Wedge, Newport Beach, California Blue whale underwater closeup photo.  This picture of a blue whale, the largest animal ever to inhabit earth, shows it swimming through the open ocean, a rare underwater view.  Since this blue whale was approximately 80-90' long and just a few feet from the camera, an extremely wide lens was used to photograph the entire enormous whale, Balaenoptera musculus This photo is the top of a stack of similar images, click to see them all. North Pacific humpback whales, a mother and calf pair swim closely together just under the surface of the ocean.
