SYDNEY, Sept 17, 2015:
An Australian photographer has captured a rare moment of animal communion with a shot of a seal surfing a humpback whale off the New South Wales coast, reported the BBC.
Robyn Malcolm had been photographing a pod of whales on a feeding frenzy 500km south of Sydney.
But she only realised she had taken the unusual picture when she went through the photos later, she told the Sydney Morning Herald.
Animal experts say that witnessing such a partnership is rare.
Malcolm insisted that the photo was not doctored, reported the BBC.
“I’m positive, because I don’t know how to use Photoshop. And I do still have it on the camera so I can prove it,” she told the newspaper.
