I photographed this whale on the 30th of January 2008 on the Silver Bank in Dominican Republic. This same whale has an interesting history. Roger Etcheberry in France has informed me that this whale has been photographed in Witless Bay in 1993, 1998, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011. It would be really cool if we could photograph it in Bermuda on its way between the Silver Bank and Witless Bay, Newfoundland! I'm sure one day we will. Bermuda lies almost in a direct line and exactly half way between this whale's breeding and feeding grounds!

And here is one of Deb Young's photos taken in Witless Bay Ecological Reserve in Newfoundland this past summer.She has photographed this whale herself in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005 and again this past summer, 2011. A prolific photograher. The recent addition of her invaluable catalogue to our attention is paying off hugely, with Roger's help!
