More ORCA!

On Saturday 30th September, Dad and I were fortunate to have arrived in Shetland for when the 27's pod of Orca swam along the south east coast of the mainland. These photos were taken in the morning, whilst the pod were in the Sandwick area. 

The views given to the sizable crowd, were in a word, exceptional. They sailed right past the jetty for the Mousa ferry, ridiculously close to the assembled crowd. Moving to the cliffs, they looked for seals at the cliff base. 

The thrill of seeing wild Orcas in Britain, up close and personal is undescribable and addictive. This is my tenth visit to these magical islands and the third and best encounter with these incredible mammals.
