Admiralty Island, Alaska

A small pod of group feeding Humpback Whales in the Lynn Canal, along the west side of Admiralty Island. This is bubble net feeding at it's most spectacular. One whale blows a ring of small bubbles that surround and confuse fish. Then, in a well co-ordinated charge, all the Whale's erupt through the suface with mouths wide open and try to scoop up as much fish as they can. If you look carefully in the first frame, you can actually see the fish in a panic trying to get out of the way!
