A female orca spyhops. She and her small group of transient orcas (three other females plus a baby) had just killed and consumed a Dall porpoise. During the aftermath, occasionally a hunk of porpoise would be propelled toward the surface near the baby orca. Clearly the adult orcas were teaching the baby orca valuable lessons in how to hunt and how to eat.
