Happy #WhaleWednesday ! 🐋🌀
Enjoy this beautiful footage and description from @uheheu: Often a mother will swim slowly at the surface while their calf twirls and plays. This behavior promotes growth and builds the strength a calf needs to make the migration north in a couple of months. This calf would nudge his mother and breach very close-by in hopes she would start nursing. Sure enough a few breaches later the mother lay idle at the surface while the calf was able to feed. This encounter lasted almost an hour.
