L pod

Oceansun / L25

Today’s noon trip on the Ocean Magic II brought us north of Henry Island were we found L pod in a resting line. Whales rest by shutting down activity in one half of their brains so they can still use the other half to voluntarily respire. Oceansun / L25 a 78 year old female seemed to wake before the others as she spy hopped twice nearby and traveled south for a bit, perhaps in pursuit of prey, before heading back to the resting group.
