“Baby humpback whales are very inquisitive by nature. Their curiosity used to be their downfall during the times of whaling in Tonga, as they were easy targets,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Leighton Lum. “Since the whaling has stopped, more whales have shown up every year to breed and raise their calves.”

“What an incredible view of a peaceful creature! I love how it looks like this ‘little’ whale is giving us the eye. Though I love the deep blue of the ocean, seeing this scene in black and white slows it down to let us truly appreciate this awesome mammal. Well done!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)
