Analia Giorgetti was rowing aboard in southern Argentina when she was recorded for an encounter she described as a “magical moment”.

Every year, groups of southern right whales visit the Valdes Peninsula to mate.

On one of these visits, Giorgetti was touched by her in the middle of the sea.

“They were submerged in water, and they started to approach with curiosity,” Giorgetti told the BBC.
