Aerial view of Wrangel Bay, Russia, one of the locations where bowhead whales (Balaena mysticetus) of the endangered Sea of Okhotsk subpopulation visit during the summer. The shallow waters of the bay provide a refuge from orcas. Visible in the background is Academy Bay, which itself comprises three separate bays (Nikolaya Bay, Ulban Bay, Konstantina Bay). Just in front of the point in the foreground are two bowhead whales swimming from left to right. Fog blankets the area frequently. Shown here, fog is in the process of rolling in from both sides to cover Wrangel Bay.
