A 15 tonne humpback whale bursts from the sea like a missile being fired from under the water into the air.

The huge mammal amazed wildlife photographer Dmitry Vilyunov as it burst from the water just 100 metres away from him.

After breaking from the water vertically, the whale then slowly fell back into the water causing a large splash.

Dmitry took the amazing pictures while on a boat in the Caribbean sea off the coast of the island of Haiti.
