Wow. That series of photos was magnificent. Luck, timing, and skill.

I've seen the video of one going up most of the way onto a beach to chase down a seal. Would not want to run into one of these in mankiller mode. I read about a yacht being attacked and sunk by orcas but the family made it off safely in a life raft.
