Humpback Whale

December 27, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

These photos of the Humpback Whale are unusual, possibly rare. I was on a tour boat that was tossing and bouncing in near gale force winds so these distant photos lack definition but they do demonstrate my point. The whale is approaching the shore so closely that it must be near to impacting the rocks. The technique witnessed here is likely a feeding maneuver to corral prey fish between its bulk and the shore. This allows for efficient scooping by the whales enormous mouth.
