Humpback Twister

A twisting water formation is sometimes formed by the tip of a humpback whale's pectorial fin and then spins off. Frequently seen, but not so often photographed this clearly - taken by Mike Murphy last week on the Silver Bank.

A Very Friendly Whale

photo by John Munro
I'm back on the Silver Bank with Tom Conlin of Aquatic Adventures aboard the Turks and Caicos Explorer II. We encountered a very friendly female humpback whale with her male escort, who is blowing bubbles at us from below.
