Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Humpbacks Lunge Feeding” by Amy Ames. Location: Resurrection Bay in Alaska.

“Lighting was tricky in a late evening in July last summer,” says Ames. “With a group of photographers, we were trying to photograph an orca pod in the distance, when we heard the noise of gathering seagulls behind us. We turned the boat around and saw this amazing lunge-feeding. Perfect timing and luck enabled me to catch the moment of the whales lunging and the seagulls waiting to catch a few prey of their own.”
