Til Tomorrow!


That was a classic feeding manouver of the hump back whale.

The whale feeds on shoals of small fish.


The way the whale feeds is to dive very deep, swinmming in a circle while blowing bubbles.(not a joke; this is true).

Above the whale will be a shoal of small fish.

The fish will be trapped in a wide column of rising bubbles.

The whale swims towards the surface, still swimming in a circle, still blowing bubbles.

When it reaches the surface it opens wide, and swallows the whole shoal.


The video shows the bubbles on the surface just before the whale swallowed the shoal of fish.

The gulls knew what was happening and they grab some of the pannicking fish for themselves.


That surfer was very lucky, not to get caught in the action.


Watch for the bubbles, and small fish just before the whale appears with its mouth wide open.
