It's not something you get to see every day, even if you are a regular at the local aquarium, but apparently the latest trend in the seal world is riding a whale to get around.

Australian photographer Robyn Malcolm captured the unusual duo off the New South Wales coast when a group of dolphins, seals, birds and whales were feeding on bait fish. The photographer saw what looked like a seal riding the back of a whale and started snapping pictures. Malcolm commented to the Sydney Morning Herald:

"We'd seen some amazing whales coming out of the water, everything was happening so quickly, and it was when I went back through the photos that I realized I had actually captured the seal on top of the whale."

This episode is somewhat reminiscent of another photo that portrays a crow ride an eagle with just as much swag:
