Sneaky Whale Pops Up Behind Sightseers As They Look The Other Way

Photographer Eric Smith was photographing a whale migration last year when he captured this humorous photo showing a sneaky whale popping up right next to a group of unsuspecting whale watchers.

They finally got a glimpse of the whale before it plunged back into the water.

Speaking about the experience, the 49-year-old photographer said he took the snaps from another boat that was a dozen feet away.

“On a whale watching voyage, it is easy to get complacent because there is a lot of waiting. It seems like the moment you let your guard down a spectacular breach occurs,” he added.
