What a farewell

The long journey home necessitated an early start so the scope had to unpacked when I noticed a large "something" cruising through the waters below the cottage. It turned out to be my first Basking Sharks: a full sized one and one rather smaller individual. Great scope views of the second largest fish in the world: the large dorsal fin moving smoothly through the water apparently chased from side to side by an erratic smaller brother. The digiscoped picture is a montage of two shots of the larger fish.
