Curious Whale Nudges Paddle Boarder in Argentina in Stunning Video

A drone photographer in Argentina captured the stunning moment when a curious whale got close to a woman paddle boarding, and gave her a playful nudge.

It’s currently whale watching season in the Patagonian seaside town of Puerto Madryn. According to the local mayor, already there have been 1,600 of these charismatic marine mammals spotted in the locality.

Photographer Maxi Jonas was lucky to be in the right place at the right time.

He managed to capture this video of a southern right whale heading towards a paddle boarder, using its fin to gently push her board, then swimming directly beneath.

Talk about the experience of a lifetime.
