Orcinus orca
We enjoyed watching three pods of orcas (killer whales)in Resurrection Bay on a 10-hour nature cruise out of Seward. There are two females and a calf in this picture. Adult female orcas have a shorter dorsal fin than the males. The captain of our boat put a hydrophone in the water so we could eavesdrop on the whale communication. It was incredible to hear the squeals and whistles of the Orca chatter!
We saw these whales on our 24-1/2 year wedding anniversary!
