Port bow

We weren’t far off entering the South Pacific. Sailing north west in the Chilean Fjords offering fantastic midday views of the Isla Campana. We would pop out into the open ocean quite soon. An ideal place to see Orca. As if by magic a few splashes distantly off the port bow morphed into a matriarch led pod of around 12 animals as we caught up with them. Always good to see this was our second encounter in as many days with this enigmatic cetacean.

Top predators

I’ve recently been contributing to the Wildlife Photography Challenge on Facebook. As a result I‘ve been digging out and reviewing a few old photos. I thought I’d post this one here. A pair of Orcas off Iceland in early 2012. Wonderful beasts these that stir emotions when you get close and can hear as well as see them! One thing the photo doesn’t convey is how damn cold it was.
