A photographer on a dive off of the coast of Tonga captured an incredible moment with a humpback whale.

Australian photographer Beau Pilgrim was on a group snorkeling tour when he managed to capture a humpback whale breaching the water's surface just a few feet away. Pilgrim also captured the lead up to the whale's impressive display, giving the viewer a glimpse into the power and speed it takes for a large humpback whale to breach the water's surface.
