The Extraordinary Creatures Called Humpback Whales

via  Darren Jew  

Photographing moments like this would be a dream come true.  I kinda envy Mr. Darren for his job, he is the Australian science, environment and nature photographer of the year 2012 for mother whale's sake. What a enviable way to earn your livelihood, I am gonna cry.

Plus here take -cause it's Sunday and you are awesome-  this rare capture by Jenny Dean, of an albino Humpback whale, strongly believed to be Migaloo, the only documented white humpback whale in the world.

Happy whalish Sunday!  :)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
