A Male Humpback whale waves back at a fisherman off of Surfer's Paradise in Queensland Australia. At roughly 10 meters, the small craft and the men on board are dwarfed by the huge cetacean. Hump backs have the largest Dorsal fin to body size of all whales; so this is one mighty wave.
Location: Surfers Paradise, Queensland Australia
