My wife and I went whale watching while on an Alaskan cruise. This pod of about eight humpback whales were bubble-netting.

Comments: My wife and I went whale watching while on an Alaskan cruise. This pod of about eight humpback whales were bubble-netting. It is a feeding technique in which the whales surround the fish with bubbles sending them to the surface where the whales then come up to feed on them – amazing sight!
