Another very good two days at Sea. I had 7 encounters yesterday and 3 more today. 5-6 of those are really good IDs so the season continues to be a great success thus far. Today was kind of special because we had another very close breach (camera wasn’t ready) and then later we ran across a whale we had ID’d yesterday, which is always cool (they don’t “hang around” much), and he put on a wonderful show of physical prowess. To add to our delight he also sang underneath the panga and we could hear him distinctly. Ah, for a set of hydrophones.

This is a "flank shot" of the singer.

Here is his ID. Had to shoot directly into the sun but his markings are clear.
