We set out from Victoria, BC, into a glassy Strait of Juan de Fuca in search of humpback blows.
And we found 2: a female locally known as BCX01057 “Divot”, and her newest calf!
We watched them for some time, and noticed some odd behaviours from the calf.
At first, we thought mom was teaching calf how to lunge feed. But upon closer inspection through my camera lens, I realized that the calf was simply playing around in the kelp!
