A pregnant humpback whale doing a headstand..!!🐋
This pregnant humpback whale is engaging in so-called tail-sailing behavior, in which she essentially does a headstand. Scientists say that the behavior is common among other whale species, but has rarely been seen in humpbacks.
Which begs the question. Why? No one is 100% sure why.
Most believe that the Humpback is sleeping, although it is more common that the Humpback sleeps horizontally in order to get air regularly.
The reason for the vertical sleeping might be that their tail acts as a stabiliser at the surface, we’re not sure how the Humpback breathes while sleeping vertically though.
We assume that they have intervals where they go horizontal in order to breathe

I'm currently working four completely different jobs. It can look and feel like a complete cluster at times. Im lucky to love all my jobs though and never feel like I'm really working.
I love how I have to focus on all these different tasks at once. It keeps things exciting.
I would much rather have a chaotic adventurous life than a routine one.
Because things can be so crazy on a regular basis it allows me to truly appreciate the calmer moments.
Whale watching this weekend was one of those moments. It was awesome to get salt in my hair, see these incredible creatures, and spend some quality time with my family and boyfriend.
The free meal didn't hurt either 😜
The sun shines brightly onto your face. You feel no pain, you know no fear. You haven't a care in the world. No one can hurt you because you matter.
I lay hidden in the shadows, cold, trapped and alone. Unable to save myself, I wish death comes quick.
I have seen the world prolong ones death for their own enjoyment.
Kill, torture, and throw away life's that matter, life's that wanted so desperately to live.
I can't help but think, "do I not matter too?" Tangled in a ghost net left to die, starve, or become a science project if found.
Maybe they will show mercy and put me in a small tank to entertain the world, but is that really mercy? No that is just prolonging the suffering, a slow death that takes away everything I have ever known.
Do I not deserve to live, Do I not deserve to be free? Why does your life matter so much more then mine? Why can't you see the beauty in me?
I help give you life, but yet you want to destroy everything that is apart of mine.
Can you look into my eyes and see that I have a soul just like you.
See that people are killing without good reason. So much cruelty and garbage that is suffocating, but yet your kind is the last to suffer.
I was not born to be a trophy or pleasure, for you to do as you please.
I want to live. If there really is mercy or humanity does exist, let me be free and just pay it forward to others like me. 💙- @inked_nena
