    Reported by:

    Very little in life compares with getting a glimpse of the love between a momma Humpback Whale and her baby. It is such a tender, caring and loving relationship it boggles the mind to think that in one short year they will separate, likely to never see one another again. Here, a very young calf is supported close to the surface by mom while it is still really learning how to get around. A floundering, inquisitive baby Humpback Whale is just about the cutest thing ever!

    I love Your Shot photographer Cathy Pepin-Toussaint's comment: "I've seen a lot of whale photos here on [Your Shot], but I can safely say this one is one of my favorites. It's such a beautiful photo, and you managed to convey that tender relationship between mom and baby. This is one of those shots that makes me say 'Gee, I wish I was there right now.'" I agree with Cathy. Well done Lyle.
