While at the Fourth Beach near the coastal town of Esperance in the western region of Australia, photographer Jaimen Hudson was lucky enough to capture glorious drone footage of two southern right whales.
Even better, paddleboarder Dave Price was on his way to meet these whales who seemed interested at the sight of him, eventually going towards him.
Check out the video below, it's even better as John Lennon's "Imagine" was added to the footage to give it a heartwarming feel.
Thanks to the successful efforts to reduce the hunting of whales, their numbers have been slowly but surely increasing. There are supposedly only 10,000 of them left and are found in the Southern Hemisphere as southern right whales cannot traverse tropical waters without overheating.
