Here is a really fun series of images of a mother and calf breaching in front of the Point Retreat Lighthouse on Admiralty Island in Southeast Alaska.

Note how the calf is still fairly yellowish in coloration in those areas where mom is white. This indicates a fairly young calf, probably just learning to breach!

Mom lands VERY CLOSE to her calf as she comes down from her breach, this little baby must have been pretty excited at the sound of mom crashing into the water just behind it!
