14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
An entangled humpback whale named "Scarlett" breaching.

We spotted this whale on 8/6/16, we alerted rescue crews who came out to help but the whale was too distressed to be helped, she was not seen again in these waters for a month until we spotted her again and she was still entangled, we took aerial photos as well to document the entanglement. Within 2 weeks, she managed to slowly free herself each time we saw her.
