Curious Baby, by Karim Iliya

We quietly approached the mother and baby humpback whale keeping to the surface, yet making our presence aware to the mother. This is a baby humpback whale calf that was approximately 1 week old. As with most babies, this creature was curious. I could not help but wave and smile at the newborn whale almost three times my length. Its curiosity got the better of it, and emerging from under it's mother's fin it swam towards me, approaching less than 30 centimeters from my face.

    Amazing picture. Only a baby and it looks like it has been through many battles. Mother Nature is not a nice lady...
