Whale birth, a photographic historical document in Valdes Peninsula

Whale birth, a photographic history document in Valdes Peninsula
I want to document a right whale calving !!! It is a phrase that said my friend and colleague Luis Pettitte, for almost a decade and a half, many, many times. I must admit that I constantly dislocated his dream and said, but that's very difficult, almost impossible. Nobody in the world documented whale childbirth. Why you do not ask anything more likely ... But the insistence and perseverance of Luis, old filmmaker who already has spent 20 years navigating the waters of the Golfo Nuevo in the whale watching. He destroyed force statistics, this terrible and constant intervention mine.

Between June and July, beginning the first sightings of whale season in Puerto Piramides. Few tourists visit the region, but they are enough to encourage the dynamics of water tours to see the whales. Coincidentally between June and July born in Valdes Peninsula around 200 calves, of which less than 10 are born whites. This combination of sightings, whale births and albinism is rare. It is difficult to see a white calf. It is generally observed a giant whale. It would seem that explodes at any time and the next day she looks decompressed, after the birth of her baby five meters and weighing several tons, swimming next to him, who rarely born white. The amazing thing about this story is witnessing the behavior of birth of a white whale!!! Whale birth, a photographic history document in  Puerto Piramides
On July 2, 2012, it was the day the stars, marked the meeting. A normal tour of Southern Spirit, a typical whale watching tour. A few lucky tourists, Justine Guevara at the helm of the boat, Juan Pablo Martorel as whaling guide and Luis Pettitte, in charge of taking pictures of tourists and marine happenings. No one better than Luis himself to relate the experience of this story:

"We are approaching what we thought was a group of mating of whales, and kept safe distance. In the group there was a female accompanied by three other adult whales. It showed the typical avoidance behavior toward males seeking mate, swimming large speed and with heavy breaths, while the other whales were following at a distance. Suddenly the female made a turn, showing a pectoral fin and getting belly up. I photographed the entire sequence, with great surprise I saw through the telephoto lens, the female giving birth to her white calf! That was how I obtained the first images of a southern right whale calving, which these great sea mammals kept secret."

"Eight people worldwide were privileged. Surprise, joy, euphoria, adrenaline, complete happiness that we all share this unique moment, being the first humans to witness a secret the nature kept to this day. A southern right whale calving
