Man Obsessed With Cell Phone Misses Mother Humpback Whale and Calf Swimming by His Boat
Dear All on my mailing list,
A man on a boat, mesmerized by his phone, completely misses a humpback whale mother and her calf swimming right next to his boat!
A professional photographer, Eric Smith, who was close by, snapped many pictures of them. He described the event:
"A mom was out there with her calf, flapping, breaching, jumping, mouths eating fish -- it was fantastic," Smith said. And then there was this man, "he never moved from his phone."
