An amazing film (~3 m) of humpback whales bubble net feeding. In the video, Lars Bejdar director of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Mammal Research Program (MMRP), notes that it shows how whales "are manipulating their prey and preparing the prey for capture."

The video includes clips from aerial drone images and clips taken from the point-of-view of the whale (camera attached).

A minute by minute description if found below the access to the video..
