This is a Humpback Whale Calf, Approximately 1 week old. We quietly approached, keeping to the surface, yet making our presence aware to the mother. After inspecting us, she allowed us to approach a little closer. As with most babies, this creature was curious. I could not help but wave and smile at the newborn whale almost three times my length. Its curiosity got the better of it, and emerging from under it's mother's fin it swam towards me, playfully rolling and circling me.
