We often come across stories that tend to put drones in a negative light, from cops in North Dakota being able to arm drones with tasers and tear gas to a fisherman attacking an innocent drone mid-flight. But we can put all of that aside for now and focus on some truly magnificent aerial footage captured by, you guessed it, a drone off the coast of Fourth Beach in Western Australia.

Not too long ago, Australian photographer Jaimen Hudson set his drone off into the air and proceeded to film this stunning video of two whales lurking beneath the surface as a paddleboarder maneuvers in the water nearby. Shot in 4K, the video really helps us appreciate the sheer size of these majestic creatures.

Speaking to, Hudson added:

There was one time when the whales lifted their heads up looked up over Pricey’s board, they were so inquisitive and wanted to know what he was. I don’t think it was dangerous, the whales moved to where he was and the whole time they were very slow moving and peaceful.

Truly stunning.
