Meet Lilium

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share that I had the privilege to name another whale. This is now Lilium (genus for true lilies, mark on upper right looks like a lily). I suggested Lilium after there were issues with some previously suggested names that were very popular with the voters so I certainly can not take all of the credit here....I'm still excited though! I do want to mentioned that Lilium was not sighted in the Bay of Fundy but in the southern Gulf of Maine.

Naming will begin for the previously sighted calves next week so if you have any suggestions for Six's 2007 Calf, please, let me know!
