Humpback Whale Jumps Up to Feast on Huge Mouthful of Fish

A humpback whale was captured feasting on a massive mouthful of bunker fish less than 500 feet off the coast of Southampton, New York, on July 28.

Drone photographer Joanna Steidle, who recorded this footage off the coast of Old Town Beach, said that the humpback whale just swam directly under her drone as she was shooting video of area sharks and menhaden fish.

Steidle told Storyful she has seen more whales off Long Island in recent years, “mostly during the summer months.” Credit: Joanna L Steidle via Storyful
