This moment was sort of adorable so I thought I would share….
The youngest Southern Resident J54 was with his mother, J28 “Polaris” and big sister, J46 “Star”, foraging. J54 was breaking away from mom and zooming over to his sister and back again as they no doubt were coordinating salmon hunting, all the baby can do is watch and learn. J54 was racing back over to mom when this happened …J28 surfaced right under J54 and he went rolling down her back as she lifted him out of the water. It seemed like an accident, but who knows. Maybe it’s a game J54 has invented for himself.
