Wildlife image of the day – humpback whales bubble net feeding, Juneau, Alaska

_mg_2935

Our sightseeing tour was a wonderful experience. We saw orcas and humpback whales spouting, tail flapping and best of all bubble net feeding.
The whales swim in a circle, gradually diving deeper and herding a school of fish into the centre of their group. They then surface with their jaws wide open to gather as many fish as they can into their stomachs.
