Humpback Whale Treats Australians to Spectacular Display

A humpback whale swimming close to Hamilton Island, Australia on Monday gave quite the show to bystanders.  In an effort aimed at attracting female attention, the whale leapt out of the water, twisting and slapping its tail. 

August is prime mating season for humpback whales when they swim into warmer tropical waters to breed before returning Antarctic waters in September.

I don't know how many ladies he managed to attract, but he sure did attract the attention of a lot of bystanders!
