A two-day old humpback whale calf rests near its mother in the waters off of the Cook Islands, in the South Pacific. This population of humpbacks spends its summer feeding in Antarctica, migrating to warmer waters where calves are born in the winter.
The bond between moms and their calves is strong, with calves spending their first year with their mothers. During this time, mother humpback whales feed and provide protection for their young.
Although much has been learned about this species throughout the past several decades of research, many mysteries remain with regards to the many complex societies in the sea.
