A Couple of Whales Keep a Lone Paddle Boarder Company in the Tranquil Waters of Esperance, Australia

While at a beach in his hometown of Esperance, Western Australia, videographer Jaimen Hudson, who calls himself the “Quadriplegic with a Quad-Copter”, captured the amazing sight of a couple of Southern right whales keeping a lone paddle boarder company during a peaceful ride through the tranquil waters.

This wasn’t the first time (nor will it probably be the last) that Hudson shot some whale footage with his drone. At the end of August, he caught sight of a single whale soaking up “the beautiful clear water”.
