Here are some photos taken by Michael Smith and Camilla Stringer today out on Challenger Bank where they spotted around a dozen whales. Many more photos to come from this bumber crop day as soon as we get a chance to process them.

Judie Clee has already matched a couple of our flukes IDs for this week. Above left is Camilla's photo which matches Allied Whale's  NAHWC8655 also known as "Mascara" first ID'ed in Gulf of Maine by Jooke Robbins in 2003. Above right is another of Camilla's photos which matches NAHWC #8719 first ID'ed in Maine in 2005. And below is the same 8719 the next day which I photographed while it put on a lobtailing display.
