Beautiful Morning: August 5, 2012

What a gorgeous day!!!  It was flat calm, lots of blows, and great looks at a mother and calf. Sloop (one of my favorite flukes) and her calf were there. We started watching the calf flipper slapping by itself. We knew mom was probably close by, but it took over ten minutes to figure out who the mom was.  Once the mom came back to retrieve the calf, nursing commenced. It was so clear that we could vaguely see the calf hanging below the mom as it nursed. On the next surfacing, mom was just hanging at the surface, bringing her head up. The calf was probably ten feet beneath her for about five minutes. It was magical! Can’t wait for the afternoon!!!
