Whale eats kayaker?

Do you know what it feels like to get a whole herring caught between your teeth? This whale taking a kayaker into it's mouth was maybe just looking for a toothpick for some extreme (for the kayaker) dental hygeine.

This kayaker near Sitka, Alaska was surprised by the encounter, and lived to tell the tale.

Dude, very clearly photoshopped picture.

I dunno, I'd expect the kayaker to be freaking out more, and who managed to have the camera out to time that shot so perfectly...

Then again the water rushing out of the whale's mouth past the boat would be hard to get right...

I'll believe it's real, but seriously give us some more details, please.

It looks like the rudder for the kayak was chopped off a bit.

The bottom part of the mouth seems longer then the top part... not matching up too well.

Whether its real or not its a real cool pic.

Sorry, I don't believe it.

A Dr. from Sitka, Alaska had photoshopped that picture as a joke for a friend. He admitted in the Sitka Sentinel, that he had done it as a joke, but people kept e-mailing it, and it spread like wild fire. It wasn't supposed to be taken serious, just a bored interest meant to get a laugh, by his friend in the kyak.

There would also be water dripping from the left paddle

Comment about reflection is the best. It's Photoshop.
