Orca Offshore Iceland

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by bobhoge, Jun 30, 2007.

  1. On our last evening on the ship, the Captain's Farewell Cocktails were delayed by a pod of Orca as we sailed from Surtsey to Reykjavik, Iceland.

    There were at least two males with the tall dorsal fins, several females, and at least one baby. The group seemed to be feeding on something just below the surface. There were lots of turns and lunges going on.

    A male (all D-70 70-300VR @300mm uncropped):
