Humpback Feeding

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humpback_Whale

   

"This whale is feeding .... not breaching... see its lower jaw is still underwater. What you are seeing is a great and unusual view of the structure of its upper jaw and the baleen that hangs down to filter the tiny krill and copepods it feeds on. Lots of good information in this photo! yeimaya"

 

Many thanks to yeimaya for excellent, and much appreciated help on these photos!
