Playful

BLACK AND WHITE

Humpback Whale calves are often quite curious. With each and every pass this calf became more confident and playful. It would roll around and slap its tail on the surface, showing me how clever it was. It is a unique privilege to be in the water with a Humpback Whale – encounters like this are rare.
