The Whale, Auckland Islands, New Zealand, 2007: Signed and Numbered

Brian Skerry 

"Underwater animals have to let you get very close, because we can’t use telephoto lenses. Off the Auckland Islands south of New Zealand, I went to photograph a newly discovered southern right whale population, cooperation wasn’t a problem: The scientist I was with believed that they’d never seen a human before, so they were very curious. This particular whale ended up spending about two hours with us. It was like something out of a dream.

I’ve been diving for about 30 years, and I can honestly say that I’ve had some amazing encounters with sharks, squids, and other whales. But the encounter with the right whales in the Auckland Islands was probably the best thing I’ve ever done. It was just that amazing."
