|My husband and his new friend, a baby gray whale.|
|My husband with an adult female. They generally stayed away, letting |
the babies do all the playing, but this one was very friendly. If you look
closely you can see her eye. She's rolled to the side so she can get a good
look at my hubby.
|I'm one happy girl. This is a baby and they have the personalities of|
|A Pacific Gray whale calf. Beautiful.|
|Alex communing with a baby gray.|
|This panga wasn't in our group, so I don't know these people. I hope they|
find this photo because that baby really came out of the water for a kiss.
|An adult female spy-hops to have a look around.|
|Spy-hopping. This behavior is very frequent in the lagoons, but less so|
as the whales migrate north.

|Sam with a baby. They often roll to the sides so they can see you.|
|A tail fluke. This usually precedes a deep dive.|
|Alex and a baby gray.|
|The babies would often approach the boats from the stern and work their way|
along the side until they'd visited with each person.
|Until next time...|
