How many of you remember the Tongan humpback baby boom last year where we all oohed and ahhed at the amazing number of new calves in Tonga? My friend the incredible underwater photographer Tony Wu recorded 48 new calves in the 2011 season and that was a new record. This year, he went back. He recorded an incredible 52 new calves - that's four more than last year!!!
