With patience and calm, Flip Nicklin was able to get eye to eye with this friendly singer. Years ago it was Flip's free-diving ability which enabled him to photograph the underside of a singing humpback without the startling bubbled of a SCUBA tank, thereby enabling researchers to determine that singing humpbacks are all males. Years later we still don't know why they sing or what they're saying. As one of the founding members of Whale Trust, Flip Nicklin continues to work with researchers to unearth the secrets of the deep- and particularly those of the Humpback Whale.
