Humpbacks Bubble Net Feeding
Humpback whales will work together as a pod to create a net of bubbles to concentrate a large school of herring. The whales then simultaneously rise vertically with their enormous mouths wide open into the mass of herring. The whale in center has just surfaced and is closing its mouth as it sinks downward. If you zoom in you can see herring trying to escape. This feeding technique is know as bubble net feeding and it is amazing to watch.
