It’s so beautiful and rare and just touches your heart.❤️
Every generation goes through a naughty moment.
And it’s not only humans because animals have the tendency to get up to no good when they’re not under the watchful eye of a parent. Just like teens who sneak out or come home past curfew while the adults are sleeping, young whales like to veer off course when mom is taking a nap!
Australian photographer Eamon Porter was out with his drone camera when he caught an already beautiful moment of a mama humpback whale with her baby by her side.
The bigger whale isn’t moving. She’s fine, she’s just sleeping, but the baby whale isn’t tired. Not one bit. The young whale is ready to take advantage of every second mom’s eyes are closed by splashing and exploring the area. There are two divers nearby fascinated by what they get to see, enjoying the show from a safe distance.
But then the baby whale starts to get curious… Who are these strange animals so close by? Could they be new friends? Things to play with? You betcha!
Leaving mom behind, the precocious teen swims over to go frolic with the divers. They appear to be way more fun anyways! What happens next is truly exciting.
It’s so beautiful and rare and just touches your heart.❤️❤️❤️
Given how agressive whale and dolphin mothers are about protecting their calves, this would make me very nervous.
Please believe mom knew she’s just letting baby have a lil fun
Right after the encounter, the whale swims back to mom who is totally unaware that anything happened, the same way a sly teenager would get away with a little trouble…!
They’re very lucky mom didn’t wake up and feel thr.eat.ened enough to protect her baby.
But a beautiful experience anyway!
