Mr Iwago Whales. Every year humpback whales embark on an epic migration 3,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean.
For eight months, Mitsuaki Iwago, Japan's leading wildlife cameraman, followed them from the warm, shallow seas around Hawaii, where they raise their young, to the icy waters of Alaska where they feed. Filming them above and below the surface and beneath the water, he captures unique scenes of the whales fishing together with a 'net' of bubbles and singing their haunting songs.
