Humpback Whale

Humpback Whale, originally uploaded by lnitsche.

We took a whale watching adventure to site whales off the coast of Maui. We saw mothers, calves, assistants and males. The humpback whales spend their time in Maui mating and birthing their calves until May, when they then return to Alaska. It was fascinating to learn that they fast while they are in Maui, losing one third of their weight.
