The fire breathing whale - an optical illusion

Is this whale methane powered?

Mark Turner took this photo of a whale spouting "fire" in Petersburg, Alaska. It's an optical illusion caused by the light of the setting sun hitting the moist air spouting from the whale's blowhole.

The above whale is much more sublime than this guy:

A fire-spouting dragon from the movie "Age of 
the Dragons", inspired by the novel "Moby Dick".
