Mother/calf Gray Whales are passing by our shore.

There were some 1,500 Gray whale calves born this year off of Baja California. The mother/calf pairs are passing by now, and will continue well into June. Gail Eddy was ready with her camera when a Gray Whale calf breached.

Gray Whale calf breaching by Gail EddyA Gray Whale mother will only have one calf per year. They are swimming northward now, heading to their feeding grounds in the Bering Sea. To see them brings many of us great joy.

Thanks to Gail for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
