Description

What a day! First saw this group of orcas from a far distance killing a dolphin. After they ate it, they felt frisky, and baby orca (main photo) breached twice and did lots of tail slaps. One of the young males did a back jump (see upside down photo). This activity annoyed a humpback whale, who came over and tried to chase away the orcas with loud trumpeting sounds. However, baby orca was still feeling frisky so porpoised next to the humpback for several minutes - there's one photo where the humpback's fin is visible in the foreground.
