Baby Whale Action at Raft Point

More Milk Mum!!

Mother and Calf

Here is a couple more images of the mother and calf off Raft Point in the Kimberley.

We had the pleasure of their company for about 45 minutes and the baby was getting quite irate at mother for not playing the game right so that he could get the milk properly!

At the end of the feeding session they turned and did a dive in unison that could not have been done better if it had been choreographed!! Mike Fletcher captured that sequence beautifully in his video. Details on where to see that vid are on my last post.

  1. Drinking milk from a teat, underwater…tricky business!! Great sequence, these would sell I recon.

  2. Yea nice Mark. Great background. Only in the Kimberley eh?

  3. Great captures, they are truly amazing and spectacular animals! I could watch them for days, you really feel touched sitting close to whales playing and gracefully swimming around you.

  4. Great work Mark, seems you are one of those hopelessly successful blokes. Wish I had your problem! Swing by my blog at:
