Humpback New Yorkers

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 (^_^)
