It has been 2 weeks or dos semanas (in espanol) since I have had the opportunity to simply sit and enjoy everything that the ocean has to offer. Hence, my sudden reminiscing of my past photos from my recent oceanic adventures over the past few years. Enter a juvenile humpback in its foraging grounds in the Bransfield strait fluking.
When humpbacks descend for a longer and deeper dive in their foraging grounds you are able to witness such behaviours like the photo below. A curtain of water flowing off the back of their fluke, as they basically "wave goodbye" to everyone watching them on the surface. This longer dive can last from a minute or so and up to 15ish minutes. Typically, it does not last too much longer than that simply due to them actively chasing their prey at depths around 80m and that activity burns through their oxygen supply.
