Firstly, many thanks for all the lovely comments and votes on yesterday's Bald Eagle shot, very much appreciated.

I thought I would stick with Canada for today and another wildlife shot, this time a pod of Orcas or Killer Whales. We were very lucky in that this pod stayed in the same area for over an hour and at times came in very close to the boat, a wonderful sight.
