Wonderful capture … looks like the whole pod is protecting the little one!
Absolutely fantastic!!! Have loved them ever since I read the book, “Song of the Humpback Whale”. So wonderful how they are all protecting the baby. Love this shot!!! It is EXCELLENT!!
Super cool capture!Would LOVE to see this with a bit of a contrast curve!GREAT SHOT!!!
Hey, Bob…saw this before but for some reason did not comment. It really is a choice moment in time to see this youngster protected by its pod. Eleven orcas in one image! Fabulous moment made even better by having a photograph of them.
Wow great capture. It looks like the older ones are trying to protect the newborn. Thanks for adding this to the ATW Challenge. Good luck.
