Ethan Daniels

ethan_danielsFollowing a recent trip to the Dominican Republic, Photojournalist and Underwater Photographer Ethan Daniels has provided ReefID with some fantastic shots of Humpback Whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) to add to the database.


img_837816835The Humpback Whale is one of the largest species of baleen whales ranging from 12-16 meters and weighs approximately 36,000 kilos.  It is an extremely acrobatic animal that often breaches and slaps its tail making it extremely popular with whale watchers.

 
Found in oceans and seas around the world, the humpback is a traveler.  They typically migrate up to 25,000 kilometers from polar waters where they feed in the summer to tropical or sub-tropical waters to breed and give berth in the winter.

 

Ethan uses his extensive background in marine biology and photography to lead informative and fun trips to see these majestic animals as well as many other fantastic creatures through Wilderness Travel.  He has also produced the books "Under Cape Cod Waters" and "Coral Triangle Seascapes" along with his personal website www.oceanstockimages.com .
