MYSTIC, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Connecticut’s governor got photobombed by a friendly beluga whale Wednesday.

Gov. Dannel Malloy was discussing tourism at the Mystic Aquarium when a beluga named Juno swam up and hung out behind the governor.

The whale almost stole the show at the governor’s news conference.

There were 10 other belugas in that particular tank, but only Juno seemed determined to steal the governor’s limelight.
