A Bigg’s (Transient) Greeting Ceremony – 10/8/16

An incredible encounter with multiple different family groups of Bigg’s Orca travelling together and have a good time. What made this day even more incredible was that there was another group, again with multiple families, to the South of the group we were with. All of a sudden the group we had changed direction and behaviour, started lining up side by side by side, with about an Orca width between, and headed towards the other group. We ended up witnessing a rare sight for us… a Bigg’s Orca greeting ceremony (or at least that’s what we humans call it). A truly unforgettable day for me.
