A Strange Encounter with an Orca Mother and Calf – 31/12/18

Today we have found a big group of orcas, they had several young calves with them.

We saw one female was interacting with her calf in a strange way, she pushed the calf around sometimes / kept the calf on her nose….

Honestly at first we thought that the calf was dead….but after a while the female decided to swim right behind our boat and luckily we could see that the calf was alive…  🙂

It was just playing, snuggling with its mother.  <3

On the photos you can see the calf is held by its mother on her rostrum, rubbing against her..
