Whale Watching by Drone Offers Stunning, Rare View of Mother Humpback and Calf: VIDEO

Whales

Justin Edwards, a whale enthusiast with a RC drone, captured some beautiful footage of humpback whales on February 14 off the coast of Maui near Kihei, including a mother playing with her calf.

Writes Edwards: "I love filming from my drone and I am always looking for things to film so whales seemed like a great subject.  I also wanted to show my two young boys what a whale was like because they would normally only see them blowing air from a long way away - Now they know how big and majestic these creatures are!"

The Documentary Sea World Doesn't Want You to See: VIDEO

Seaworld

Gabriela Cowperthwaite's documentary Blackfish follows Tilikum, the orca responsible for three deaths while in captivity, including the 2010 death of Dawn Brancheau, a 40-year-old trainer at SeaWorld, which made headlines around the world. It looks devastating to an entertainment industry bent on putting these creatures in tiny pools, and should be.

The documentary premiered at Sundance and is due for theatrical release next month.

As a follow-up to my post of last week, here's a recent rare Orca encounter near Denmark, kindly translated by someone on Reddit:

There, there, look at that!
NO, they're coming over here, dammit! Sail dammit, sail dammit! They're right under us, they're huge. I am afraid of them!
Don't be.
Emil, for f**ks sake, it's Orcas! get me out of here.
Take a picture!
I am filming.
Look at that, now take some pictures!
I am filming it!
Look at the fin on that one... Now hold fast when they (BEEPING) or you'll be knocked off.
This is insane!
Just take a look at those fish, no it's Orcas dammit.
It's Orcas, Emil... SHUT UP!
It's the world's most dangerous fish... Take some pictures.
I AM filming it! I've got it all on film.
Look at that fin on its back... This is crazy!
They're under the boat!
They're gone now... This was crazy! They were huge, Mikkel!
NO, they are coming back! I don't want anything more to do with this sh*t.
Are you afraid of fish?
I'm afraid of f**king Orcas!
