Whale Forming Spiral While Bubble Feeding

This is the mesmerizing moment a group of humpback whales uses the bubble feeding technique to make a spiral to hunt for krill. The whales use a technique called bubble-net feeding, where the krill become trapped near the surface of the water in a net of air bubbles. It is one of the few surface-feeding behaviors that humpback whales are known to engage in.

During a research project in Antarctica, conservation and adventure filmmaker Richard Sidey of Wanaka, New Zealand, captured amazing aerial footage. 

If you are interested in whales, I have some good news. The scientist made a website, Pattern Radio: Whale Songs, that lets you explore thousands of hours of humpback whale songs and make your discoveries using AI.
