A great family portrait and size comparison. Mommy T123 (front) with her two kids. Look how tiny T123C (less than a year old) looks compared to his/her older brother T123A (13 years old)! I’ve seen this family three times already this spring, and on each occasion the calf has been swimming very close to his/her older brother, surfacing with him and even rolling around almost on top of him like a giant whale jungle-gym. It is amazing to watch a 10,000 lb animal bond with his much smaller baby sibling.

T2C1 “Rocky” surfaced right next to us, and in my spastic flurry of excitement I somehow managed to take one clear shot.

Thought the water streaming down from his eye area was interesting (I hear whale tears are worth their weight in unicorn horns).
