Whale Surfaces to Smile

Occurred on September 12, 2018 / Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia

Info from Licensor: "I've worked in whale watching for 15 years with the same company, we caught this on camera last whale watch season and as far as I know the action by this whale has never been filmed before. The humpback whale came to the surface as if to spy hop and opened it's mouth to full extension with no apparent reason for it. I've never seen anything like it before in 15 years working whale watch neither had our skipper of 28 years who you can hear freaking out in the background."
