Humpback Whale and Diver

Taken by Peter T. Hartlove of Longmont, Colorado, this image received an Honorable Mention in the Connecting People and Nature Category of the Wildlife Magazine's Photography Contest of 2006.

Each winter, these whales gather off the coast of Silver Banks, Dominican Republic in order to mate and give birth. This calf is swimming near the surface while its mother keeps a close eye on it from the background.
