Bubble feeding at its finest.!!😁❤️

🔘 #SavingtheWaves ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whales practice an unusual group feeding behavior called bubblenet feeding (also known as lunge feeding), in which a group of whales works together to capture large schools of herring.
・・・
Each whale has its own role in the process: one blows bubbles around the herring school to keep the fish from escaping, others vocalize to scare or confuse the fish and help bring them to the surface, and others herd the fish together and upwards. Once the fish are at the surface, all the whales lunge upwards with their huge mouths wide open and try to gulp as many herring as they can. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A small pod of orcas surprised @caro_lin_4 while she was out on the ocean. As great as it was to see them they surprised her again when they surfaced just inches from the boat! If you can't tell the two bull orcas where huge and their dorsal fins stretched several feet tall! If you wait till the end of the video you're in for seeing something pretty cool, as this was amazing for me to watch. Thank you for letting me share!

VALENTIN*

Valentin, who was born at Marineland Antibes on February 13th 1996, just a night before Valentine's day. Valentin was Freya's only surviving calf out of five. The two were very close and could often be seen performing together up until her death in June 2015.

His mother Freya*, a wild-caught Icelandic orca, died in June from a long, unidentified illness. She was in her early thirties.
His wild-caught Icelandic father, Kim 2*, died at Marineland Antibes in November 2005 at 23-24 years of age.

Valentin's dorsal fin was partially collapsed and would have likely fully collapsed in time. He was intermittently put on medication for safety during orca water work sessions (he was aggressive towards his trainers on several occasions), as well as to curb excessive sexual behaviours with his half sister and brother, Wikie and Inouk, as well as his own mother, Freya. Semen samples were also collected from Valentin as part of the facility's Artificial Insemination programme.

Earlier 2000s,  young Valentin pulled trainer John Hargrove under the water by his socks and tried to remove them, the behaviour continued for two weeks.

Sometime before May 2001, young Valentin swam at trainer Lindsay Rubincam open-mouthed and thrashing.

Valentin displayed several stereotypic behaviours (abnormal, repetitive behaviours indicative of stress), including burping, chewing concrete and bumping his head against tank walls and gates. He also had a pronounced skin condition on his chin.

On November 20, 2013, Valentin's half sister, Wikie, gave birth to her second calf, Keijo. The father has not been confirmed by Marineland, but Valentin is the suspected father.

Valentin passed on October 12, 2015, when he was 19 years old. He leaves behind Inouk, Wikie and Wikie's two calves, Moana and Keijo at Marineland Antibes.

Sun is back next Tuesday. Beautiful Troia beach 🐚🎵. Troia is a peninsula located South of Lisboa. It's best reachable either by car and the ferry from Setubal or just by car which is around 100 kilometers longer @lisboalive #portugal #setubal #comporta #troia #relaxing #dolphins #golfinhos #sounds #throwback
