Humpback whales are taking Manhattan! There have been twice as many sightings of humpbacks off of Rockaway Beach in Queens than there were two years ago. That’s amazing! Also amazing: these shots that New York photographers are capturing of whales against the New York skyline are absolutely jaw-dropping.
Scientists attribute the return of the whales to cleaner water, and increased populations of Menhaden- a popular prey fish. I find it interesting that fish named the “menhaden” lives around the island of “Manhattan”. Could there be a connection?
Happy Humpday (^_^)
