A humpback whale was spotted feasting in waters near the southeastern Alaskan city of Ketchikan on November 24.
This footage, shot by Christy John, shows the massive marine mammal gulping up fish as it surfaces.
John told Storyful the humpback, dubbed “Phoenix”, is a “local celebrity in Ketchikan, especially during this difficult year.”
“He has become a local mascot,” she said. “Many residents follow him all day along the docks. He inspires us to stay strong and united.” Credit: Christy John via Storyful
