KARELIA, RUSSIA - UNDATED. EXCLUSIVE: Beluga whales, Delphinapterus leucas swimming, at the Arctic circle Dive Center, White Sea, Karelia, northern Russia. These stunning images show the latest in up close animal encounters in the wild. Captured in the freezing arctic waters of Northern Russia's White Sea, thes images show the curiosity of Beluga whales, who are fascinated by their human visitors. Caught on film in waters of -10C, the Whales at this specially protected "natural farm" are a mix of wild animals and former performing animals, who come here to breed and be rehabilitated into the oceans. Arctic diver and photographer, Franco Banfi, 58, who captured these shots said: ÐWhen a whale comes up to us and swims by, it looks you right in the eyes. Obviously we dont know what they think, but they are very curious creatures Ð Sometimes, I'm sure they're trying to figure out what we are and where we came from.Ó (Photo by Franco Banfi/Barcroft Media/Getty Images)
