A Post Kill Celebration – 20/10/19

T099B doing a funny half breach while little sibling T099D looks on.

These guys had just made a kill (harbor seal most likely) along with the T037As. Once the whole gang was together with their food ready to eat, they started breaching and pec slapping like mad (a highly unprofessional term we call “pop corning”, not to be confused with the pop corning behaviour that Pacific white-sided dolphins are known to exhibit!). It is at once exhilarating and very confusing to see such a burst of surface activity like this. It is often over as fast as it starts.
