baby pilot whale frolicking in the pacific ocean; I was photographing several other pilots whales in this particular pod when this baby began playing on the surface, from lying on it's back to jumping and twisting in the water..the whale did this maneuver only twice but I was lucky enough to capture his antics on his second maneuver before he returned to swimming with the remainder of his pod

Location: sea of cortez, baja,mexico
