Sometimes when I see image above and symmetric undewater one - - I can't stop thinking that humpback whales are great dancers, with signature moves constituting their own GangnamHumpback style ! ^_^

It's always incredible to see these 35 ton animals throwing themselves in the air with no seeming effort. I just don't want this to happen when I'm in the water next to them ! ^_^

In next post I will write about getting close to whales, since so many of you asked for it !
