Here is the underside of the fluke of the breaching humpback. The identity has been confirmed as Hobo.
This photograph was taken today while Hobo was slapping his fluke on the water. We also saw Hobo during the 2005 season.
On our evening trip we saw another humpback whale. This is Parachute, a whale we have seen for the past 3 seasons. We couldn't have asked for a better day, it reminds me why I love my job. Thanks to Jooke Robbins at the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies in Massachusetts for help in identifying the humpbacks.
