Humpback Whale Feeding

The humpback whales come to our area for one reason and that is to feed.  They feed heavily on krill and small fish such as herring.  In this photo you can see that the humpback has done what is called a lunge feed.  This is where they come straight up with their mouths open and try and consume as many fish as possible.  The small fish you can see jumping are herring.
