Humpback Whale Encounter – Female & Escort (March, 2011)

A female humpback is curious and keeps coming back to take a look at Andrew Stevenson but her escort is jealous and keeps cutting between the two of them.

Andrew Stevenson is the producer of the remarkable film/documentary “Where the Whales Sing“; winner of the 2011 Charman Prize and ‘Best Emerging Underwater Filmmaker’ at the Blue Ocean Film Festival.

The film is a culmination of three years (2007-2010) of filming and observing North Atlantic humpback whales during their mid-ocean migratory crossings.
