Reiko Takahashi went from sitting at a desk to diving off the coast of Japan’s Kumejima Island to photograph humpback whales. It was the ultimate “follow your dreams” story, and her passion was vindicated when an especially poignant image of a humpback whale won the 2018 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest. Takahashi beat out more than 13,000 entries. “I was fortunate to have encountered a humpback whale with her calf on my first day snorkeling near Japan’s Kumejima Island. Most of the time, the calf stayed close to her mom. At one point, the calf began jumping and tapping its tail on the water near us — it was very friendly and curious. Finally, the mother, who was watching nearby, came to pick up the calf and swim away. I fell in love completely with the calf and it’s very energetic, large and beautiful tail.” — Reiko Takahashi. Go here to see the full galley of winning images that highlight the breadth of Earth’s biodiversity.

6-foot swells make for a rough boat ride, but for some fun orca action! AP12 and AP3 (perhaps her mother?) were doing some surfing on 7/16/18 in Kachemak Bay, Alaska.
