Two humpback whales feeding on the surface. The whale on the left has closed its mouth and is ejecting water. The whale on the right has its mouth wide open and you are looking directly at the upper jaw, soft palate, and baleen with small bait fish stuck in the bristles. Everywhere black-vented shearwaters hope for a meal.
Image 3 of 3 in a row: a humpback whale feeds on a northern anchovy school through a vertical lunge. The gullar pouch and ventral blubber grooves are fully-extended with water and fish. Water is starting to pout out of the mouth through the baleen filter.
