Humpback Whale Sprays Rainbow from Blowhole

Forget drones through fireworks, this is way more beautiful.

This quadcopter managed to capture some amazing aerial footage of a humpback whale spraying a rainbow from its blowhole.

In the video, captured off the coast of Newport Beach, CA, on Sunday, the whale blows a number of times before an almost-perfect rainbow is formed in its spray.



And here are some more whales in the wild for the fans:
