Local photographer Matt Lusk captured this video Tuesday of a humpback whale swimming in turquoise waters near Rodanthe. Whale sightings this time of year aren’t unusual, as humpbacks migrate from wintering in the Caribbean back toward New England for the spring and summer to feed. You might even catch a mother and calf, as humpback whales breed and give birth over the winter.
