“Tail and Blow” – Photo Art Print P105
“I shot this photo while on a self-assignment for my whale book. The great thing about photographing whales in Juneau is that I never have to travel very far. I can put my boat in the water at North Douglas and be guaranteed seeing a whale in a ten-minute skiff trip. Two classic behaviors of humpback whales are the high fluke signaling a terminal dive and the blow or breathing of a surfacing whale. I was happy I could combine these behaviors into one image.”
The shape of the humpback whale’s tail or flukes is unique to each individual. Researchers use the shape and the markings on the flukes like a human fingerprint to tell one whale from another.
