Albino Humpback Whale Caught on Film Near Australia

This one definitely needs to be filed in the "stunningly beautiful" category.

A completely white humpback whale has been professionally filmed traveling south about 2 km (approximately 1.2-1.3 miles) from Green Island off the coast of Australia.  This was the first time the whale, named Migaloo, was filmed professionally.  Migaloo was filmed in Cairns on the Great Barrier Reef.

Pilot Chris Rose and cinematographer David Farmer obtained the footage of Migaloo.  The BBC is reportedly making a documentary about Migaloo and the footage will be used for that.

For more information and to see a gorgeous photo of Migaloo (you must see this picture!!), you can read this article.
