The mom did 3 or 4 wonderful vertical lunges while the little calf did some rolling around. During the second encounter with this pair, the little calf did a tail-throw impression…practicing to be and adult.

Nearby there were three adults. One of them did a series of sideways lunges on the surface. Two very large breaches were seen by a distant pair of humpbacks near the end of our time.
