Orca Tails: A female orca and her calf wave their tails playfully, a short distance off the coast of Punta Norte, Argentina. Orcas spend the first few years of their lives with their mothers, learning a variety of behaviors and feeding techniques.

The family of the orcas pictured here, living off the coast of Patagonia, has developed a feeding strategy that includes beaching as a means of grabbing sea lion pups from the surf. The orca’s timing must be perfect, and these creatures must carefully select the location in which they attack.

I’m awake just realizing my mom has been dead for 19 years - no one helped her- I hated her

Your photos are amazing! If you ever have the chance please come to Panama’s Coiba Island. It’s an untouched paradise for marine life. I’m sure you’d love it there!
