Description: Near the Stag Rocks, West Cork, June 2014. Young animal that spent about 40 mins around the boat with its mother close by. Spy-hopped on a few occasions in an apparent attempt to satisfy its curiosity as to what the boat was. This photo was taken when the animal swam right up to the boat for a look, its eye clearly visible underwater.
