Rare footage shows a breaching, spinning whale beneath a rainbow

Humpback whales will sometimes breach, or leap, placing their immense size and incredible power on broad display. And when Mother Nature provides a rainbow as a backdrop, such an awesome act appears all the more magical.

The accompanying footage, showing a humpback whale spinning during its breach, was captured Wednesday in California’s Monterey Bay by Cheré Tamura from aboard the the Blackfin out of Monterey Bay Whale Watch.

“Not only did we have Orcas/Killer Whales breaching, we had this magnificent creature who breached in front of a rainbow and right next to our boat!” the company stated on Facebook. “Simply amazing! It has to stand all by itself!”

Definitely a matter of being in the right place at the right time.
