I find social relations amongst individual humpbacks fascinating

Here is a group Bar Harbor Whale Watch/ Allied Whale saw feeding together 7/26/2012
Humpback feeding frenzy!!!!

Whales in the group included: Triton, Patches, Viper, Tusk, Notchy, Flyer, and Arch.

I know Triton, Tusk, Flyer, Notchy, Viper (maybe) are males anyone know about Patches and Arch?

August 1,2012 Granite State Whale Watch saw Bat, Ebony (two old time females know since the early 1980's) and Cajun:

"Bat spent the morning swimming around with Cajun and Ebony as all three were definitely doing some feeding in the water column! 30minutes later we saw the same trio (Cajun, Ebony, and Bat) still swimming together with a fourth added into the mix. Sundown, a whale first sighted in 2007 had joined the group."

Granite State went on to say: "As far as what we see, just off the top of our heads, it is really quite random in regards of associations. Only a few instances have we seen the same pairs over the course of a few days still in association with each other. Granted we hav
e no idea what is occurring overnight (whether they continue swimming with each other or perhaps break off only to join up later the next day) we have no idea. Most whales, if seen repeatedly, are either on their own once again or just together for a brief time with another individual before seeing it once again on its own at a later time. Very intriguing lifestyles that is for sure."
