And They Spread Their Giant Wing-Like Fins . . .
And they spread their giant wing-like fins . . . and returned from the brink.
The whales remind us of our great capacity for positive change . . . when our value systems change and knowledge, connection and humility replace fear and misunderstanding.
The simple solution? Care More. Consume Less.
There are still so many ways to indirectly kill a whale and damage the life-sustaining seas upon which we all depend.
Image is of “Jigger” the mature female Humpback Whale who breached for 18 minutes. More images below.
You simply can’t be the same after seeing something like this, nor would I want to be.
What triggered this behaviour may have been an encounter with another Humpback (“Slash” BCX0177″) but we cannot know for sure.
For the work of our Marine Education and Research Society, please see here and yes, you can support our work by sponsoring a Humpback Whale!

Beautiful photos Jackie of a most impressive whale. Wish we’d been there to see Jigger and all the other whales off Vancouver Island. Maybe we’ll get back one day. We’re still travelling 😉
So spectacular a creature, I don’t understand how anyone could think of hunting them.
what big beautiful animals are they. thanks for sharing this and all the rest George van Zuylekom
My goodness, no way this can ever get old. Were you squealing with delight while taking these?
Indeed, it will never get old.
