Bryde's Whale

There are believed to be less than 20 brydes whales of the entire West Coat of the United States, they are more commonly found in tropical waters but little is known about these rarely sighted whales. On this day in these photos, the brydes whale was 3 miles off the coast of Newport Beach. The proper way to pronounce this name is "broo-dus."
