Wrangel Island – Beluga whales

Belugas are not too difficult to find (much less than the elusive narwhal). But, like all whales, they are often hard to catch in action.

Here, a group of the white whales was hunting slamon. The grey one is just a young which did not yet grow its porcelain-colored skin.
