This is fucking terrifying

I would’ve been so shook

Awww whale.

Whale I didn’t see that coming

it would’ve scared the fuck out of me holy shit that’s big

So for anybody who doesn’t know, that ring of bubbles you see coming up before the humpback does is a “net” that the whale creates by swimming in a circle and blowing the bubbles from its blowhole. The bubble net disorients the krill/small fish/whatever and corrals them into one spot so that the whale can lunge up and feed as you see it doing. It’s most often done cooperatively in groups, and a whole bunch of whales will lunge up at once.

In other news that is one deep harbor, holy shit.

I wish their was sound

bluuespace:

Humpback Whales were once hunted to the brink of extinction but are a beautiful example of the effectiveness of conservation. Once enough people cared to speak up for them they were given protection and now their numbers are slowly coming back and only recently were ecologists able to describe their ecological importance for the heath of the ocean moving nutrients from polar regions towards the equator. There’s nothing like watching a 40 ton haunpback mother swim her calf to the surface to breathe right in front of your eyes, their song and presence is humbling and takes my breath away. I hope people can come together to gain the same desperately needed protection for sharks before it’s too late for them.

This energetic humpback whale spotted in Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is exhibiting a common whale activity known as breaching. There are many possible motivations for these acrobatic leaps above the water’s surface, including communication with other whales, attracting mates, or just being playful. Humpback whales sure know how to make a splash!
