Gray Whale mother/calf pairs are passing by the Mendonoma Coast!

The vanguard of the mother/calf Gray Whale migration has arrived. Pairs have been spotted every day this week. Paul Brewer photographed a calf breaching. There are three photos in this sequence.

Robert Scarola noticed a mother/calf pair very close to shore and got this photo of one saying "hello".

It is heartwarming to see these CA Gray Whales passing by. Look for a big spout closely followed by a smaller one. It is sure to make you smile.

Thanks to Robert and Paul for allowing me to share their photos with you here. To see much more of Paul's nature photography, here is his website:
