Wildlife photographer Justin Hofman captured the following magical (and terrifying) photos of a 50-ton baleen whale and her calves who decided to lurk under a small tourist vessel.


To put it in perspective, 50 tons is about the same as 30 Chevy Malibus.

Justin said the whale seemed intent on making friends more than anything.

You can see the tiny birds in comparison. The whale could easily crush the tourist boat.
