A whale watching trip takes a turn for the worse for photographer Dale Frink.
Dale is a wildlife photographer and he was photographing marine wildlife off the coast of Sand Diego.
A pair of blue whales were noticed lunge feeding nearby at what was a safe distance away when all of a sudden they disappeared below the surface.
Unfortunately, with all attempts to follow protocol and maintain a safe distance from the feeding whales they suddenly appeared mouths open just behind his boat.
Well needless to say what happened next. Fortunately, aside form minor bruises and such no one was hurt and the whales involved were later observed to appear just fine.
