Beluga Whales: Play with me!
Baring teeth and charging upwards, this rare beluga whale makes a dash towards wildlife photographer Joe Bunni. But rather than an act of aggression these 4m long mammals are just messing around in the sea, enjoying the company. (Barcroft)
The endangered pair were captured on camera by Joe in the freezing waters off the northern coast of Russia, in Mourmansk province, bordering Finland. (Barcroft)
