Here she is: female humpback whale 87635 with the satellite tag on the left side below the dorsal. You can hardly see it, but it's still transmitting. This photo was taken on the 6th of April shortly after the whale was tagged in the Dominican Repulic. My daughter Elsa (6) and I are off to Norway on Saturday to see if we can find her and her calf.

Here's Elsa doing an early morning check of her Monarch butterfly caterpillars. She's been packed and ready to go for a week now. Only three more sleeps until we are off to find 87635 and her calf! Only trouble is, when Somers heard we were going to look for a humpback whale and her calf, she wants to come too.
