I named this one 'Licorice' because it is rare to see a full black bellied humpback whale in the southern waters of the Pacific Ocean, they are usually a combination of black and white. Full black bellied whales live mostly in northern waters. This calf, about 4 weeks old, stole the show. It's mum had breached a few times and then this little one leapt out again and again, as if mimicking her and saying "I can do it too". At one point it launced a full horizontal breach, and then suprised us breaching directly in front. It playfully popped up before heading to it's new home. I will be looking out For Licorice every year.
