New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife whale expert Geoff Ross gives his expert opinion on this behavior. According to him, this coupling is a very rare occurrence.

The only other time was a seal trying to get away from a killer whale… the seal hopped on the back of the pectoral fins of a humpback whale,”

Upon skepticism, it was concluded that no editing was done to this amazing capture.
Another early find like this was in March when amateur photographer Martin Le-May shot an accidental photo of a weasel clinging on to the back of a woodpecker at Hornchurch Country Park in east London.
