📷 OneBreathOnePhoto #22 - ONE photo of ONE moment on ONE breath of air
Hello dear Steemian friends! Welcome to the 22nd episode of:
As some of you may know, two of the things that I'm deeply passionate about besides travelling, is Freediving and Photography. Freediving is a practice of diving underwater without a tank or any other breathing apparatus, gliding through the watery abyss on a single breath of air with nothing but you and nature.
It is usually a beautiful and wonderful experience to see a humpback whale in the wild, especially the newborns being nurtured by their mothers. However, what you see here is a picture of a lone calf without its mother, the same juvenile whale that was spotted alone the day before, was again swimming alone today, this time following a group of dolphins as if he was trying to make friends. He is believed to be blinded in one eye, and has parasites all over his body. The locals know that he won't survive much longer without a mum, or a friend.
