“This day the sea was clear and quiet,” writes Your Shot member Fabrice Guerin, who captured this picture of a humpback whale and calf off the South Pacific island of Tonga. “The baby played for a few moments, and before joining the depths of the ocean, rubbed its mother as if to [give her] a hug.”

Bay Breach

Photograph by David Howells, National Geographic Your Shot

“This image was captured as we were returning from a fruitless search for active humpback whales,” writes David Howells, who took this picture on Canada’s Witless Bay. “We had given up as the sun was setting and were returning to harbor when this young humpback started breaching right in front of us. Sometimes you just get lucky!”
