Who’s Watching Who

Swimming with Humpback Whales in Vava’u in the northern islands of Tonga is the place to be. Between August to October you will likely see a calf like this one. The calf can be so curious, coming up to eyeball you and then diving back down to see mum, surfacing 4-6 times before you see the mother’s surface to breathe. The calf consumes around 200+ litres of milk per day, this ensures the calf puts on weight quickly for its long migration back to Antarctica. For the next 12 months the calf will stay by its mother side, becoming a juvenile whale, then it will head off to make its own life. – photo by 2014©Tom Balks/TomBalks.com all Rights Reserved

“Fingers” Mitchell Cullen is a talented multi-instrumentalist from Albany, Western Australia. I had the pleasure of meeting him when he came to the North West Cape as a headline act for the Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival 2015. This photograph was taken at the Exmouth Yacht Club during that tour. He is a Sea Shepherd supporter and named his 2015 album Shepherd of the Seas and gained permission to use the Sea Shepherd logo on the cover. – PHOTO BY 2015©TomBalks.com/Tom Balks
