Humpback Whale Swims With Dolphins, Doesn't Quite Blend In

This might be the most epic game of tag we've ever seen.

In the video above, watch as a humpback whale either playfully chases a small pod of dolphins or makes a valiant attempt to blend in with the crowd ("A" for effort, whale).

The incredible footage was captured on New Year's Day off the Waianae coast of Oahu in Hawaii, where dolphin sightings are fairly common.

Dolphin and whale sightings together, however, are pretty rare.

Hawaii is a popular migratory destination for the North Pacific population of humpbacks, but the whales are federally endangered.

Thanks, Mother Nature, for never ceasing to astound us.
