Alaska... one in a billion photo The photo was taken at the entrance to Katlian Bay at the end of the road in Sitka , Alaska . The whale is coming up to scoop up a mouthful of herring. The kayaker is a local Sitka Dentist. He apparently didn't sustain any injuries from the terrifying experience. The whale's mouth is fully open with the bottom half under the boat. Look at the picture again - He is in the whale's MOUTH!
Real - This is a real collision between a sailboat and a juvenile Southern Right Whale, which was breaching, off the coast of South Africa. Although, there are several strange coincidences related to this event. The photos were taken from a boat which happened to be following and had a camera at the ready. No major damage to the hull and they claimed the whale suffered no serious injury.
