Whales bubble feeding near Juneau, Alaska

Several whales are bubble feeding...a rare photo capture of whales doing cooperative feeding. They circle a school of fish, closing in and tightening their circle, blowing bubbles to keep the fish inside. The lead whale signals and they all come to the surface with mouths open to grab as many fish as possible.
