Jump For Joy II CO8488

There are many theories as to why humpback whales jump. I like to believe it is because of a desire to play. It's fascinating to note that several species are known to breach a lot more often during mating season than during their feeding season. Recently, off the coast of southern New South Wales, I witnessed a breathtaking sight of a sizeable solitary male jumping repeatedly for over twenty minutes on a rough and windy day. It was a remarkable experience to see these magnificent creatures' sheer power and grace.
