2012 12 10- Amazing underwater footage of calf nursing and humpbacks bubble net feeding Print
Written by Andrew Stevenson   

In 2009 I was at the Society for Marine Mammolgy conference and saw this incredible footage of a humpback calf nursing from its mother and then looking up and following half-a-dozen to the surface as they bubble-netted a school of herring. This footage couldn't have been replicated by the best underwater filmmaker--it was done by a Critter Cam planted temporarily with a suction cup on the calf's back.
