Hey! Look up from your screen! There's a humpback whale right in front of you.


If it's any consolation, it doesn't look like the birds are that excited about the whale, either.

Professional photographer Eric Smith captured this perfect moment in Redondo Beach, CA a few days ago when a whale surfaced to breathe right next to a man on his boat, but the man missed the whole thing because he was checking his phone.

In an interview with ABC, Smith said,

"A small private sailboat maneuvered really close to the whales, and this guy on it was literally sitting in that position and never moved. He could have been texting his mom in the hospital for all I know, but I thought it sucked that he missed such a wonderful moment happening just two feet in front of him."
