Humpback whale breach - Plongeon d'une baleine à bosse

Here is an example of a 40 tons "fish" that fly in the air ... imagine the power it takes... (we have to think about it... without contact of your feet on the floor, have you ever tried to get yourself out of the water even at your belly level?)

This should be the last Humpback whale picture (at least, for a while) I will upload. I'm very happy I had the chance to see such rare events as breaching, tail-slapping, flipper-slapping, etc... I have to say that it was maybe the most impressive event I have ever seen in my life. Now, more than ever, I'm convinced of the importance and urgence to take care of our planet and all its living inhabitants, especially the one that are endangered like the humpback whale, the right whale and the arctic bear... We all have an important role and if we act together, we can improve our future. We must not forget that Humans cannot be safe if the biodiversity is not...

sometimes i dont understand philosophy of this owners of ocean. How they fly out from water or how they making unusual sounds. Think that it is peace of mystery when you think about the planet.
Flying jets... it is proubably look like submarines !
