This is the start of whale season, when the gentle giants breed in the warm northern waters off Australia after feeding in Antarctica.

Thanks to a citizen scientist and his drone, humpback whales were seen feeding in a mass super group and "bubble-net feeding" off the New South Wales coast last year.

Bubble-net feeding is when whales deliberately blow bubbles from their noses to encircle their food—krill and fish—like a net, concentrating their prey into a tight ball.

Then, the whale or group of whales swim together from beneath, rise to the surface opening their mouths, and gulp up their prey.

Humpback whales caught "bubble-net feeding" on camera for the first time in Australia

This is the first time they've been seen on camera doing it, thanks to a citizen scientist with a drone.
