We're fans of the creative types of people who use their camera-equipped drones to capture amazing videos of nature and the environment from exciting new perspectives.

One of the latest is that of footage captured via drone by the crew of the Steve Irwin ship, which stars an endangered blue whale mother and her calf swimming beside each other.

The footage was taken during Operation Icefish of 2015-2016, which was an anti-poacher program intended to help protect the species from behind hunted.

The blue whale is one of the largest animals in the world, and can easily grow up to 100 feet and weigh more than 200 tons. They're found throughout the Northern hemisphere in the colder oceans.
