Check out this amazing video Justin Edwards posted to Vimeo a week ago. With his GoPro camera attached to a drone, he got a breathtaking clip of a humpback whale and her calf swimming around and snuggling.

Baby humpbacks usually stay with their mom for around a year before venturing off to find their own way in the world. They tend to live part-time in pods of anywhere from a couple of whales to close to 15. Humpbacks live in oceans all over the world. Here off the coast of the U.S., there are a lot that migrate from Alaska to Hawaii for breeding each year during the winter (December to May).
