Princess of whales (updated): How a naked female scientist tries to tame belugas in the freezing Arctic

Princess of whales: How a naked female scientist tries to tame belugas in the freezing Arctic, article.


This Russian scientist has some kind of balls: these are arctic waters, and she swims underwater with the whales up to ten minutes! OMG.

Update: A said:

the photographer has a very nice flickr page with many more underwater images.
btw, the story about the whales not liking swim suits is nonsense (see the flickr stream ..) 


Short video in Russian.

I admit it is more stylish without ;)

Thank you very much.

I didn't see the suit data. Did they do it for artistic reasons then?
(She is a beautiful dame.)

in the article in the "Mail online" it says "experts believe belugas do not like to be touched by artificial materials such as diving suits".
Ha Ha, very funny ;)

Nonetheless, these really are stunning images and very beautiful indeed!

if you understand russian, here is also a short video from the shoot:

Too bad she's not hot.

When diving in/coming out of minus 1.5 centgrade water? You want her to have a fever?

Yes. A fever of 103.
