Amazing K & L-pod encounter in the afternoon! Sept 23rd, 2010

Naturalist Kirsten looks on in astonishment at the action we were witnessing:)

Here are just a few images from an amazing afternoon encounter with K & L-pod! We were the only boat around observing this nursery group just north of Hanna Heights. As we watched the group we could see a number of young Orcas being taught to forage (hunt for Salmon) by the older females in the group, it was an incredible experience!

We also had our hydrophone in the water and listened to some breathtaking vocalizations and echolocation, probably the best I have ever heard since I entered this wonderful industry in 2005. Today is a day I will not soon forget:)
