Humpback Whale Rainbow Spout

While we had been whale watching once before in Maine, it paled in comparison to this whale watching adventure at Icy Strait Point in Alaska. I had so much fun watching these whales play with each other, feed, and just go about their day, but watching the rainbow form in the exhaled breath of this humpback was certainly a highlight.
