A beluga whale poses perfectly for this portrait in the chilly waters off of Nova Scotia, Canada. Belugas are a highly social pelagic species, often called the ‘canaries of the sea’ for their diverse repertoire of whistles, clicks and other sounds. They are also know to mimic sounds that they hear, including boat engines and other human sounds. 
Though these gorgeous creatures live in the Arctic, they frequently move into Sub-Arctic waters as well. They are one of the only whale species capable of turning their necks in all directions. 
Currently, populations of beluga whales are classified as ‘Near Threatened’ by the IUCN.
