Photo: On a Mission

On a Mission Humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) participating in a male competition group. There was at least a half a dozen of whales splashing around and head butting each other in this group as we watched for a good hour. They were still at it when the boat returned to the harbor. She must have been quite the humpback lady of hotness that they were fighting over.
