Sometimes, Nature puts on a show that leaves us awestruck. The first pictures of one of the world’s rarest sea creatures, Migaloo the white humpback whale, have been taken of the magnificent animal beginning his yearly migration north along Australia’s eastern seaboard.
Migaloo, Australia’s own Moby Dick.
Tourists frequently take boats out to catch a glimpse this time of year.
And Migaloo is usually happy to show off for his fans.
Migaloo has become somewhat of a celebrity on the east coast of New South Wales.
The much-loved whale has returned every year since first sighting in 1991.
Migaloo is protected by Federal Law which prevents him being approached.
Here’sone of the few videos that exist of such a rare and unique creature.
