Two Dunedin fishermen have captured the “euphoric” moment as a whale breaches out of the water just metres from their boat.
Real estate agent Chris Taylor had taken the day off work to fish with a friend near Cape Saunders off the coast of Dunedin on Friday.
Taylor said he had just reeled in a tuna when he witnessed what appeared to be a large humpback whale breach out of the water.
This week we're looking at how the pandemic will affect our children and their resilience. The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print. Parents, if you're happy for your children to be photographed please let us know.
