Australian diver. photographer, and YouTuber Beau Pilgrim was nearly crushed by a 40-ton whale trying to capture this breathtaking footage of one of Mother Nature's true behemoths breaching the water. Pilgrim was just a few feet away from the whale when he filmed it swimming up out of the depths, leaping into the air, and then crashing back into the waves. This seriously raised the hairs on my arm.
