In the three years that we have applied ourselves to taking fluke identification photos we have our first home run. This whale has been photographed in Bermuda in each of the last three years. If we could get out almost every day and id all the whales that came through Bermuda I'm sure we'd have a few more whales that we recognise year after year. While less than ten percent of the flukes ids come from photographers unaffiliated with the Humpback Whale Research Project, the fact that two of these photographs came from a different person on other boats emphasises the importance of photographers on whale watching boats contributing their photographs. Thanks Lynn and Richard for these invaluable contributions to our records.
