WHALES: Orcas’ evening visit on Father’s Day

Thanks to Jamie Kinney for sharing photos from orcas’ visit to the area before sunset. He says these were taken from Alki, looking toward Manchester.

These were transient killer whales, according to Orca Network reports. (Reminder – you can hear about the southern residents at The Whale Trail‘s summer gathering Thursday.)

    Apologies for the distortion in these images.  They were taken at twilight from Alki beach when the Orcas were close to Manchester – a distance of more than 6.5 miles!

      6.5 miles away! Amazing! What camera/lens? Thanks for sharing the photos!
