Drones have helped capture some of the Internet’s most incredible videos, but we think this one might go down as the sweetest.

While whale watching near the Hawaiian island of Maui, Vimeo user Justin Edwards used his GoPro-equipped drone to film a very sweet moment between a mother humpback whale and her calf. According to NOAA, finding a mother/calf pair in the ocean is fairly common. Hawaii-born calves are known to stay with their mother for about one year, usually becoming independent in route to or while on feeding grounds in Alaska.

Watch below as a baby humpback whale plays, swims and snuggles with its mother as the camera films from above.
