Dimples

Dimples was first photographed in 2005 and has been photographed consistently since then.  Dimples has been identified on both the right and left sides and is a presumed mother based on photographs with an accompanying calf.  This whale has unique "dimple" markings on both sides that could be caused from a bullet wound or they are possible old satellite-tag scars.
