At the end of every rainbow, you will find a pot of gold… or was it a humpback whale?
The following photo hit the internet last week from the California wildlife photographer who had the instinct to take his shot at the exact moment. So we now know that there is at least one rainbow in the world that ends in a humpback whale. The beautiful water flew up and a brilliant rainbow appeared. The colors are spectacular, who would of though such a huge mammal could sneeze such beauty?
This was caught last December while on a whale spotting expedition off the coast of San Diego. Domenic Biagini a while life photographer caught the footage and posted it on his Instagram. Yet it did not really blow up until April 10th when it was posted to the famous post sharing site Reddit.
There just is a certain love for whales no matter where you are in the world. The big cetaceans that swim with such grace and seem so at peace with the world. Whales actually breathe oxygen, hence why he needed to sneeze – to clear his nostrils before taking a breath. The huge sprout of water that causes this rainbow is actually the whale exhaling. Then the humpback would proceed to suck in new air so he can dive down into the depths again.
What might ruin this glorious photo is when you find out that whales don’t just exhale water. Typically whales exhale a bit of old air, some water vapor but mostly it is a huge amount of whale snot! The beautiful sneezing rainbow is actually a colorful whale booger.
Nevertheless, we have to agree humpback whales are just incredible creatures, they migrate over 5,000 miles every year & while they swim you might hear them singing a love song. In fact, they even follow the rules of grammar. There are even documented cases of them saving humans from sharks. Pretty cool no? So even if we doubt that you will ever see a rainbow sneeze again, humpback whales are still amazing.
