Many of the humpback whales we observe in the waters of British Columbia have been identified with a number / name and have their pictures in a catalogue. The underside of a whale’s tail shows a range of white patterns. These patterns added to any scars or other markings are unique to each whale.
These are all first year grizzly bear cubs however one in noticeably smaller. This photo was taken on a grizzly trip in early September but by the end of the month the small cub was no longer with it’s mother.
