Kynan Wall was paramotoring near Lennox Head in New South Wales on June 30 when he spotted something extraordinary – what looked like an albino humpback whale calf swimming with its mother near the ocean’s surface. Aerial footage recorded by Wall shows the pair, with the young white whale standing out against the shadowy presence of the adult directly below it. “We see whales a lot when we’re flying along there but I’ve never seen a whale calf that was that pale,” Wall told the ABC. The sighting sparked discussion of a “Migaloo 2.0”. Migaloo, an adult white male humpback, was first spotted in 1991 near Byron Bay and has since attracted whale watchers to the area, according to the Australian Geographic.
