Humpback whale calf.

French Polinesia, Moorea. Portrait of a humpback whale calf entering the water after surfacing to take a breath. If approached very slowly and having as a top priority respect for the whales, they can build enough confidence and trust in us thus allowing them to como very close and spend some amazing time together.
