Most days this past week Gray Whale mothers with calves have been spotted. They are quite close in. Paul Brewer recently photographed two mother/calf pairs. This is, I believe, a calf as there are no barnacles on it.
Here you will see a mother/calf pair.
And here's a photo of the iconic Gray Whale tail.
And finally a Gray Whale spout.
Thanks to Paul for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Paul's nature photography, here is the link to his website: http://www.capturingnatureswonders.com/
