Photo: Spectacular whale-leaping scene



For the photographer, it’s a treat for the eyes; but for some tourists on a boat, it’s a missed moment of wonder.

A boat of whale watchers missed a spectacular scene of the huge animal launching itself out of the water while they were looking in another direction on Tuesday in Sydney.

Thousands of humpbacks and southern right whales are heading north to spend winter off Queensland. The majestic mammals then return to the Antarctic from September to November.
