Orca (killer whales) in fog

On whales watching tours from the lodge it is often best to sit and wait.  In the fog it is possible to locate the orca with the aid of a hydrophen but that does not tell you their direction of travel and only a rough idea of how close they are by the loudness of the calls. Once you are able to hear their blows as they surface to breath it pays to sit and wait quietly with engines turned off. This photo is a testimony to patience and I assure you that my guests pictures were allot better than my small point and shoot.
