A group of whale watchers hoped for a one-in-a-lifetime sight, but only to get epically played by the massive whale they were all waiting to capture on camera.
Thankfully, the hilarious moment was caught on tape by director and photographer, Eric J Smith and it now went viral!
The marine life enthusiasts were all patiently waiting in their boat with the cameras on, but they nearly missed the spectacular sight as the massive whale decided to trick them. The gr0up was offshore Baja California in Mexico, waiting for a lifetime opportunity, but they were all looking the wrong way while the whale popped up its head behind them.
The animal lovers got lucky though, as they turned their heads just in time to grab some adorable snaps with the magnificent creature.
Just like it have known the curios sightseers missed the first opportunity, the humpback whale offered them other glimpse of it. This time, the moment was even celebrated by some of the whale watchers.
