This ballsy seal hitched a ride on the back of a humpback whale in Australia

Robyn Malcolm was taking photos of a feeding frenzy full of dolphins, birds, whales, and seals when she captured a photo we’ll be talking about for years. A seal hitching a ride on the back of a whale… looking majestic as heck.

The feeding frenzy was taking place just off the coast of Eden, NSW, when the photo was snapped.

‘We’d seen some amazing whales coming out of the water, everything was happening so quickly’, Robyn says. ‘And it was when I went back through the photos that I realised I had actually captured the seal on top of the whale’.

Robyn says it’s not photoshopped (she has no idea how to use it) and there is actually a seal out there who’s ballsy enough to hitch a ride on the back of a whale.
