Well, my friend
requested an "Encore" of whale shots and... well, here's another one.
A baby humpback whale, little more than a year old in Stellwagon Bank, off of Provincetown, Cape Cod Massachusetts.
The son of famed wale Cajun
This little fellow made the trek with his mom along the east coast of the United States from the Caribbean waters from where he was born. If he's lucky, he'll make the trip up to 70 more times.
Humpback Whales are perhaps most famous for the breeching action this little tyke is portraying here.
Whalers used to call this species "The Merry Whale," for it's acrobatics.
Even the whale's scientific name; "Megaptera novaeangliae" meaning "Long-winged New Englander" has a festive sound to it.
