    The Bleuvet is near Pointe Noire, where a herd of roughly 40 individuals is actively swimming. We observe a number of surface activities, including pectoral fins and tails emerging from the water. Amongst the individuals we photograph is Elle, who is swimming with Dorothy. At the beginning of the encounter, the animals were mostly stationary, diving and resurfacing at the same location. Was this a feeding behaviour? At the end of the contact, the belugas began to head up the Saguenay. It was then that we spotted a calf swimming close to a female with a small gray line resembling a pencil stroke on her right flank. The crew did not immediately recognize this individual.
