Many photographers and videographers have been capturing sperm whale images in recent years, but all of those are near the surface. Nautilus Live recently stirred it up with a rare and very surprising sperm whale encounter caught on video 598 meters below the surface (1,962ft).

The encounter took place in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana, where ROV Hercules was circled several times by the sperm whale. Encounters like this are extremely rare, and good video even more rare.
