The splash caused by a Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) after it lands after breaching. It is amazing to see something this large come completely out of the water with apparent ease, and cause this sort of immense splash upon landing.
These whales can grown to upwards of 52 feet and weigh as much as 50 tons. They are also responsible for majorit of the more beautiful the 'whale songs' that have become synomous with the general public.
