"We sent whalesong into interstellar space because the creatures that sing these songs are superlative beings that fill us with awe, terror, and affection. We have hunted them for thousands of years and scratched them into our mythologies and iconography. Their bones frame the archways of medieval castles. They’re so compelling that we imagine aliens might find them interesting - or perhaps understand their otherworldly, ethereal song." - Nick Pyenson, Spying on Whales (@pyensonlab )
How whales brunch 😂🐋 Bubble Net Feeding is a unique feeding technique employed by Humpback Whales, in which a group of whales swim in a shrinking circle blowing bubbles below a school of fish. This shrinking column of bubbles surrounds the school of fish forcing them upward. The whales spontaneously swim upward through the bubble net, mouths wide open, catching thousands of fish in one gulp.

I’ve seen @marina.daian my good friend and freediving buddy have the most amazing interactions with all sorts of creatures including turtles which are often uninterested in humans. She could capture the attention of a sea cucumber and it would be mesmerizing to watch; so when she finally came out to Tonga to freedive with humpback whales, the gods of the sea, I was pretty excited. On the start of this drop, I foolishly took a different camera off the boat (one not suited for this kind of photo). I watched in frustration as this large female turned onto her back and played with Marina and @_charyse , unable to include them in the photo. As soon as she want down for a rest, I raced back to the boat and swapped cameras in time for her to come up and watch this beautiful interaction @dancewithwhales #humpbackwhale #whalewatching #delfines #orcas #orca #blackfish #emptythetanks #whale #whales #whaleshark #whalesharks #whaleseason #internshipdiaries #marinescience #biologist #salishsea #marinemammals #puertolopez #cetacean #orcawhale #whalewatch #spermwhale #killerwhales #humpbackwhales #bluewhales #savethewhales
Looking back at photos from the start of the season it's hard to believe how fast time flies. It seems that the whales just returned (extremely hungry after months of fasting) and now that they've feasted all summer they're preparing to leave once again for the warmer waters of the Caribbean to repeat the cycle.

Before his dad passed away from cancer, he said he was ready to swim with the whales. I had the privilege to start this sleeve with @slab_life last week and look forward to additional sessions to finish it up. @painfulpleasures @electrumstencilprimer @worldfamousink @afterinked @ultimatetattoosupply @peakneedles @therawcanvas #justinnordinetattoos #watercolortattoo #whaletattoo #memorialtattoo #humpbackwhale #armtattoo #colortattoos

@lydiabeechart After the "Best Day Ever" experience that we had when we took some of our Stand Up Paddle clients out on a flatwater tour and were blessed with the presence of humpback whales, I painted this pretty humpback whale canvas. #acrylics #tamarindo #costarica #sup #standuppaddle #humpbackwhale #whaleart #whales #playatamarindo #supcostarica @costaricasupadventures #lydiabeechart #costaricasupadventures #tamarindobeach #whalewatching
Inktober Day 23.. Very sketchy Humpback Whale for #inktoberanimalparty2018 prompt by @katekennedyart. Feel abit discouraged sometimes when it seems like trying to publish my art doesn't get anywhere, and like no one likes my art enough to buy any of it 😂 Then I wonder why I put so much effort in😪 BUT I know I put in effort because.. I love art!!! And things may be slow now but it will improve in time so I keep encouraging myself 😁💪🏾 #brbchasingdreams 😉 . Prints Update: Instead of putting Inktober prints in my Etsy I'll put them on my Redbubble later today, because keeping listing on Etsy is #expensive 😂😌 I'm having a mini sale on my Etsy of my usual prints ✨ Link in Bio! . . . . #Inktober2018 #Inktober #ink #instaink #illustration #illustrationartists #illustratorsoninstagram #artistsoninstagram #instaart #humpbackwhale #whale #illustrationoftheday #painteveryday #sketch #sketchbook #skyscape #galaxy #fantasyart #illo #dailyart #drawtober2018 #drawlloween2018
RepostBy @gary_j27 : "Humpback day! Here are the shots from our staff trip of humpbacks in Blackfish Sound. It is such an incredible place! Humpbacks as far as the eyes can see, common murres squawking as they herd up herring into huge bait balls, gulls diving in at the bait balls and when the group of fish gets big enough, the humpbacks come in with their mouths wide open and take them all. We had both lunge feeding and trap feeding! #whale #whalewatching #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nikon #nikontop #nofishnoblackfish #noplacefortankers #nomorefishfarms #explorebc #explorevancouverisland #sharecangeo #beautifulbritishcolumbia #humpbackwhale " (via #InstaRepost @EasyRepost )

▪️23/31: Humpback whale▪️ This flying whale is kind enough to house a small colony of bats every day till dusk. 🌙 #inktoberanimalparty2018
A female whale traveling south towards some other island with her very young calf, and the two escorts that were mating in my previous post . This photo can you a nice sense of scale and a sense of how whales differ in looks from newborn to adulthood. The baby is about 3 times as long as the average human. Look closely at the differences in their face and mouth. The calfs are cute but the adults have a much more refined majestic beauty.

There are moments that happen in this world that are beyond imagination. We spent the majority of this swim actively swimming away from this extremely inquisitive whale who wanted to physically interact with us. I watched his behavior, studying his movements, before I stopped moving away from him for a mere few seconds. I was able to get an image of his eye, up close with the sun blazing through it, while he tucked his pectoral fin to his side, allowing me the perfect amount of time to let him approach me this way, before swimming away from him again. Please understand, it is standard practice while swimming with them to remain at least 5 meters from whales at all times. There are some scenarios, depending on the whale's behavior, where moments like this can occur. Maintaining a safe distance is crucial for both the whale's safety and the human's.

We found this Mum and her very young baby early in the season. The sight of their blows in the distance gave us such joy, excitement with goosebumps on my goosebumps! We could see that the calf was till very young so we took extra care and took it easy. From 50m away we slipped in quietly and started our approach. It was incredibly beautiful, the clear water the light ...... as I got closer I could just see them in the distance, relaxed in their environment just hanging out, her calf by her side. It was truly spectacular, the whales in their environment, the sand, the textures, the reef, the light. Whales in blue ocean are spectacular but they too live close to shore, they too live on reefs, they too live near the surface, they too live deep. This scene really pulls everything we are fighting for and wanting to protect together. It is a huge reminder for me of the #biggerpicture , #thewhy and #thepurpose . Most of all it inspires and motivates me to #protecttheplanet #todobetter #bemoreproactivewithothers #itisworththefight This piece from Tom Althouse really caught my attention too. “There is beauty all around us, and the light finds us when we realize, we are all part of that beauty and worth the cherishing. If we despise any, we journey to despise ourselves. See all as beautiful, even if they choose to see themselves through you, as being less than so. We have the power to see for each, and be the reflection of what they may yet see.” - Tom Althouse 💙🐋 #saveourseas #bethereflection #thereislight #facilitateunderstanding #protect #whalesunderwater #wuwhumpbacks18 #whalesunderwater18 #darrenjew #pxlexplorer #mumandcalf #humpbackwhale #babycalf
HERVEY BAY: Quickcat II Whale Watching Excursion Today Prince Harry and Meagan Markle went out on the same boat! (these pictures are from our road trip, we were not on at the same time). However, we were so excited to hear this because we have become quite fond of the family who owns this business. We’ve gone out 4 times (3 times in 2 days) and we knew that when mom and dad came, they had to experience whale watching with them. The end of the season has quickly approached us but we were able to enjoy a mother and her calf. I truly can’t put in to words how amazing it was to watch this mother care for her newly born calf. (I think that’s what you call a baby whale) lol The baby played closely to its mother and at times we even watched the baby while it laid on the mothers back. At times it would roll over and you could imagine it was giggling and having a good time. If you are ever in Australia during whale watching season, Hervey Bay is the place to go. If you are like John, you may even want to swim with the hump back whales. Quickcat II ALLOWS YOU TO SWIM (for the bold) or enjoy a cruise while you watch the whales during migrating season. My parents have never gone whale watching so this was a first for them. It truly was a treat! We’ll post a video soon... #Whalewatching #quickcatii #herveybay #australia #queensland #expatlife #expat #humpbackwhale #quickcatii #herveybat #travel #traveling #travels #blogger #vlogger #travelblogger #familyvloggers #nature #wow #awesome #love #family #australia #oz downunder

Ain’t stopping with this spam anytime soon 🐳
You are pondering over this giant question – should you go whale watching in Perth? After all, watching this giant gorgeous animal up close is such a cool and YOLO thing to do. But I know your fear. “What if I can’t get to see the whales? What if the yacht stays 2km away from the whale, and all I can catch is just a glimpse of the whale tail? Will I end up wasting my time and money?” Check out the link in my bio and discover my experience with @allseacharters. 🤗🤗 http://gogobudgettravel.com/should-you-go-whale-watching-in-perth . . #girldiscoverers #perthwhales #girlslovetravel #mytinyatlas #instapassport #ladiesgoneglobal #girlsborntotravel #thetravelwomen #citizenfemme #dreaming_adventures #shetravelz #whalewatching #whale #humpbackwhale #perth #perthtravel #australiatravel #australiagram

I filmed this sitting in my car late this afternoon 🌊🐋 Was windy on the ocean, but a cool lil' video nonetheless.
The #humpbackwhale season 🐳 is coming to a close on the Gold Coast and they sure didn’t disappoint today! I had a great morning with @lukemcowan on the 🚤 enjoying these beautiful ocean giants. Side note - we also came across a Hammerhead shark cruising on the surface at Fido’s Reef which was a first for me to see! . . . #goldcoast #australia #visitqld #whale #jetski #nikon #aquatech #natureshit #memorymillionaire
Listen with sound on 🎵 - it’s a singing whale in shallow water, not moving at all and singing its little heart out. #whales #humpbackwhale #vavau #tonga #swimmingwithwhales #whalesong #song #meditation 🐋🎵🐋🎵🐋
