Spyhops galore today! Met up with the J14s, J16s, and K14s (and Granny too!) and they sure were in a playful mood. I can’t even count how many spyhops we saw.

Back flip of a wild orca (Orcinus orca) in the waters off Norway. This young female did the same breach three times close to our boat. I have never ever seen a breach like that from a wild orca. I cannot recall any picture taken of such a breach in the wild. The second time she breached, I was able to capture the reflection of the female on the still water of the sea which was like a mirror. It is one of my best memories in my photographing experience.
