6/19/87 Derecha with Cone again

Even though it was pretty choppy, we went out again the next day and came upon Derecha and Cone in just about the same place we had left them, but Nurse was not with them this time.

Derecha's dorsal is closest, Cone's is tucked in close behind, just barely visible. The two females dove and came up in unison remaining so close their flippers must have brushed. It seemed really companionable.

The blue boat in the background is the deep sea fishing boat that belonged to our boss. He had gotten out to Jeffrey's Ledge before us and helped us find these two.

There is a tiny brown bird in the lower right hand side of the picture, it is a wilson's storm petrel.
