Wild Picture of the Day or #WildPic today is from Traveller, Adventurer, Explorer, Writer & Photographer Iain Mallory of Mallory on Travel – ”Being teased by a Humpback Whale”.
Yes, thats right - it’s the Humpback Whale ….
Found in oceans and seas around the world, they are said to migrate upto 25,000 kilometres (16,000 miles) each year. Found mainly in waters of Australia, New Zealand, South America, Canada and the United States. The Humpback stands out with it’s distinctive body shape. The whale’s conservation status is ”Least Concerning” on the IUCN Conservation species list and is said to have about 80,000 humpback whales worldwide.
As Iain describes this moment – ‘Visiting the Cetecea Lab in the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia I was fortunate enough to spend several hours in the company of a juvenile humpback whale. It took me several hours of patiently watching the water and trying to anticipate where the playful humpback would appear next. Although the whale never provided a glimpse of his tail fluke or did any spectacular breaching, it was still one of my favourite memories from many years of travelling”.
Iain’s image certainly makes it on our Wild Picture of the Day or #WildPic series.
