Climbing Doi Luang Chiang Dao (ดอยหลวงเชียงดาว), Thailand’s 3rd highest mountain, with an overnight camp near the summit. My 1st attempt at a trekking vlog.
Footage of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) from the Kingdom of Tonga in the south Pacific ocean.
Humpback whales are a type of baleen whale. In the winter months this southern population of whales migrates north to Tonga, where they give birth to calves and mate.
The early shots in the video are young male humpback whales. Later we see a mother and her young calf.
Last year when I was diving at Anilao in the Philippines I got some nice footage of a couple of pairs of Nembrotha chamberlaini nudibranchs mating. The first pair was at Red Rock and the second at Twin Rocks. It was the first trip with my Panasonic GH4 camera.
Nudibranchs have barbed penises to hold them together during mating, and the footage at the end shows the effort and twisting movement required by that pair to withdraw.
