Some reporters freak out in a bad way when their live report is interrupted by an animal.

Such as this San Diego weatherman who couldn’t handle a bug flying around his head.

But other reporters lose their mind in the positive sense when a (sort of) similar situation takes place.

Take the BBC’s Steve Backshall, for example, who was conducting an interview with whale expert Dorris Welch on a boat in California’s Monterey Bay when he learned that blue whale had been spotted.

Yes, a blue whale!

"This is one of the most extraordinary things I’ve ever seen,” Backshall gushes, going on and on over the "largest animal ever known to have lived on our planet." 

It is pretty cool, we must admit. And Backshall’s reaction is pretty epic. Check it out here.
