Baby Brydes BW23
This is a female Bryde’s whale (Balaenoptera edeni) with her mini-me calf. The baby Bryde’s was energetic and prone to roaming far and wide from its mother, this being a rare moment when the pair were together.
How adorable is the baby?
Incidentally, the pronunciation of Bryde’s is something like brew-dus, with the brew syllable being extended in enunciation, like bruu. It is not brides. The reason is that the whale is named for a Norwegian man, Johan Bryde, who certainly did not pronounce his name as bride (rant over).
