The blue language from these stunned fishermen says it all.

The spectacular moment a humpback whale launched itself out of the water off the Pilbara coast was captured on camera by the unsuspecting anglers.

And the colourful commentary by cameraman Dominic Tyson is almost as entertaining as the moment itself.

While his fishing partner appears more concerned by the fish and filling up glasses of wine, Mr Tyson is fixated on the horizon as the whale swims by.

As the whale breaches and flops on to its back the man is heard yelling “Oh motherf*****... I’ve seen him launch out of the water.”

In an exclamation which would make the likes of David Attenborough shudder, the fishermen then pleads for the huge whale to “do it again, c***”.
