Here's looking at you, BABY!
Not only do adult humpback whales love to breach, but babies love to get in on the act as well! This little calf is probably about six months old, having been born in Hawaii in January or February of this year. It has been very patient while mom has been busy bubble-net feeding with her friends here in Chatham Strait, but ENOUGH is ENOUGH! When a tail-throw and some pectoral fin slaps do not get mom's attention then what is a baby to do? The answer of course is to BREACH! I was as surprised as this little calf must have been to find that it was breaching right at out little inflatable boat!
