Photograph by @Pau@PaulNicklen // Travelling through the open ocean along the northern fjords of Norway, a humpback whale lunges to the surface, filling its mouth with herring. However, this mouthful of fish didn’t happen on pure luck. It was generated through a parasitic sequence of events between two species just before this photo was taken. A pod of orcas was first to the scene, herding schools of herring into a tight ball; a common and highly coordinated hunting technique. However, as the fish grew closer to the surface and the orcas began to feed, a pod of humpback whales rose from the depths of the ocean, mouths wide, bursting through the herring ball. As they broke the ocean’s surface, their mouths overflowed with an abundance of fish, made possible by the orcas. #FollowMe on @PaulNicklen to see when a large male orca swam within two feet of me.
