Photo ID Lesson for Journey North, by Dr. William Megill

Example #2

These two photographs are of whale G014, photographed near Cape Caution, BC. The circles and arrows point out some of the identifying marks in the pigmentation of the whale. Remember that the animal is in a different orientation relative to the camera in the two shots, so you'll have to rotate the whale in your mind to make the marks fit.
