It’s that time of year where the whales make there northerly migration up the coasts of Australia to warmer waters to calve. This shot was taken north of Tweed Heads in Queensland. The males slap their tails which makes for a huge splash & the sound can be heard from a great distance away. It is thought to mark it’s location to other whales.
