We are plying the waters of the Saguenay Fjord, near Baie Sainte-Marguerite. We spot a herd of some 30 to 50 adult and young belugas. Annakpok is observed in the company of Athéna, another female of the Saguenay community. Within the herd we observe a newborn, but are unable to pinpoint who its mother is. Individuals within the herd are not particularly dynamic, treading water, diving and surfacing at the same spot. This behaviour is called “milling”, and is often associated with feeding periods.
