Drone Captures Huge Pod of Humpbacks Feeding in Alaska
A drone captures a large pod of Humpback Whales feeding in the pristine waters of Alaska. The aerial drone footage, captured by AkxPro, shows a seagull’s POV of the scene.
The humpbacks are using a coordinated hunting technique known as ‘bubble net feeding’. They start by making incredibly high-pitched noises which drives the fish to the surface. They then blow air bubbles (which act as a wall) to surround and concentrate their prey before they all rise to the surface with mouths open for feeding.
