Momma Whale Takes Baby For A Piggyback Ride In Amazing GoPro Video

As a mama whale snuggles with her baby off the coast of Hawaii, a drone keeps pace and captures the remarkable moment on video.

Justin Edwards of DroneAbove had the idea to combine the beauty of whales and drones in a video he shot earlier this year and it was just posted by GoPro.

The whale pair were spotted off the coast of Maui swimming side-by-side. It's as if the mama is giving her calf lessons on how to use its blowhole. With the sun low in the sky, the images are nothing short of spectacular.
