Orcas Under the Arctic Sun
This Orca mom and her little one approached me slowly taking a good look with the mother staying in front as if she was letting her young one have a look without getting too close to this unusual creature. What made this encounter so magical was the light. The low afternoon sun was breaking through the surface of the cold, dark and greenish water and created some of the prettiest sunbursts I've ever seen.
