Photo of the day

From the Telegraph’s animal photos of the week:

Patrick's friend Wade Campbell kayaks near a blue whale on April, 12, 2015, in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka. BLUE WHALES move majestically near the surface of the ocean as an awe-struck diver watches on. The incredible animals were captured on film by Denver-born filmmaker Patrick Dykstra, who fulfilled a long-held dream by swimming with the creatures. The whales are the largest animal to ever inhabit the earth, and outsize even the biggest dinosaurs. Stunning drone footage captures the enormous mammals from above, while in other shots a kayaker paddles just metres from one of the awe-inspiring creatures.
