Looking into the Eye and the Mouth of the Whale

We have been seeing a lot of a young humpback whale (1 1/2 year old) that has been hanging around near Edmonds this fall.  On one recent occasion we watch this whale lunge feed at the surface about 30 times in a row!  On many of these lunges you could see right into the mouth and eyes of the whale!  Check out these pictures of the feeding frenzy.  I’ve zoomed in on a few of the pictures so you can see the eye better.  Photographer/Naturalist Bart Rulon
