Humpback Whale breaching

Dora Passage, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska, USA

Humpbacks are well-known for their tendency to breach, an unexplained activity where they use their powerful tail muscles to propel themselves bodily out of the water.  This calf seemed to be learning the behaviour from its mother for the first time and was having a blast, breaching ten times in a row, right past the observing boat.
