~Humpback Whale~

I found an unexpected surprise in today's mail... An amazing and so beautiful panoramic card of a humpback whale, one of my favourites... Its such a great new addition to my whale collection! Thanks Edna! You made me smile :):)

The most friendly, playful and perhaps intelligent of the whales, these large mammals are popular attractions in the Southern Ocean.This one is 'breaching'. That's when they leap out of the water, as dolphins do. This expose their huge pectoral fins, which they are famous for. They are group oriented, which pays off when hunting schools of fish, using cordons of bubbles to confuse the fish.
