Incredible video footage shows the moment a Dublin couple’s holiday photo was made a little more special than usual.

Whilst Declan and Mandy O'Donoghue posed for a picture on a boat tour in Australia, a massive humpback whale can be seen lurking in the background.

As the pair wait for the photo to be taken, the huge mammal stretches out one of its fins and starts waving it around in the background.

The photobomb was captured by Peter Lynch on one of his Blue Dolphin Tours around Hervey Bay in Queensland, Australia.

He said: "It's really special to see something like this in person - even more so when it's a mother and her calf right beside her.

"It's extremely rare for it to happen this close to the vessel.

"This is why we run the tours, allowing guests such a close encounter.

"We always hope they make a connection with the whales which will affect their choices regarding the environment and conservation."

Peter and his wife Jodie have been running their tours since 1997, but have been working with dolphins and whales since 1983.
