Whales off New Caledonia

This is spectacular footage shot by a drone of three orca whales swimming around and under a boat off New Caledonia in the South Pacific.

This is a great use for a drone (in this case a DJI Inspire drone). However, note the blown highlights on the whitewater when the whales surface and on the spray when they blow. I don’t know a thing about drones or the cameras mounted on them but no doubt this is something drone photographers would want to keep in mind in choosing a camera for their drone (or a drone that comes with a built-in camera).
