Here's an aerial view of a paddleboarder and whale encounter. It's set to music and takes on the appearance of a pas de deux. The whale even gently propels the boarder through the water with his fin. Note there is some discussion if the encounter might not have been as enjoyable to the paddleboarder. She has crouched down on the board for greater stability. See what you think. ~z https://twitter.com/nowthisnews/status/1562435305818542080

That's pretty neat, Z. The whale seems genuinely curious. A Southern Right whale, I think. So close to an urban area, too. But did you happen to see the other whale video on that same link, about 4 vids down? Someone dropped their phone into the sea and a Beluga retrieved it. Now THAT'S amazing.

I have seen a beluga retrieving a cell phone before. So it must have been the one you mentioned. ~z
