Baby Sperm Whales

These images are from our new book: A Whale Tale - Wrinkled Baby Giants in a Wine Dark Sea. We were fortunate to be able to dive with a pod that included two babies that had been born on the previous night. This was their first day alive in the ocean. We captured rarely seen images of the calves feeding and interacting with their clan. When the mothers dived to feed, three males in the pod baby-sat the anxious youngsters until the mothers returned from the depths.
