A man starts filming seagulls. He manages to get a once-in-a-lifetime picture.
This group was on a boat off the coast of Alaska when they saw something they’d never see again. There was something in the water near them. Brad Rich and his friends were on a boat off the coast of Seward, Alaska, when they saw some huge animals.
There are a lot of people who have wondered what it might be. So they took their time when they went to look at it. As soon as they get close enough, there are a lot of seagulls flying over them. Because of this, they quickly figured out that a humpback whale might be there. As a surprise, there were a dozen whales having dinner. Fortunately, Brad and his crew could get a picture of the scene. After it was shared, the video went viral. It was seen by more than 14 million people after that. After you watch it, you’ll understand why.
In the water, a group of whales was eating. While the boat was moving, the huge creatures were shaking the water and making the boat shake. Even the crew was keeping a safe distance. In this case, the friends only saw a small part of the whales. However, what happened next was very interesting!
They came right up to the boat Brad and his friends were in. They were both scared and happy at the same time. If I were to guess, I think most of us would not know how to feel or act the same way. It’s rare to see this kind of thing on Discovery shows.
In the end, though, Brad and his friends thought there was nothing more exciting than this. Take a look at the video below to see what it looks like when humpback whales are feeding.
