How many ways can you photograph a whale and still make it interesting? The fact that humpbacks are inherently so graceful and beautiful, makes it easy. These underwater encounters help us to identify them by the black and white patterns on the underside of the flukes (they don't always fluke on the surface) and also allows us to tell whether they are female or male, adult, juvenile, yearling or calf.
The whales in these photographs are catalogued in our catalogue as #1569 1 bd 2015 03 22 as and #1570 1 bd 2015 03 22 as. They are two of the over two hundred whales we identified here in Bermuda waters this season.
Photographs are taken under a Protected Species Licence for Scientific Research Activities Licence no. 14-11-22-15 issued by the Government of Bermuda, Department of Conservation Services
