I made this two weeks ago while on our honeymoon. In the background you can see Bora Bora. Humpback whales are near french polynesia during 4 months a year to find a partner and/or to give birth to their babies. We had the luck to see two whales which were very interested in our boat and came quite close.

No they don't look naturally like that, they're mostly scars from a specific kind of barnacle.
