LAist Featued Photos contributor Jonathan Alcorn took some amazing shots of the gray whale hanging out in Marina del Rey this week. The young whale, about 20 feet in length, has been hanging around drawing crowds because, hey, it's not just everyday that you get to see a whale so easily from shore. Yesterday, another contributor shared a couple videos with us.

Just remember, it's against the law to touch it and even be purposefully within 100 yards. This guy (last photo down) didn't get the memo.
