      Minette's killer orca photo appeared on the front page of the P-I (remember Seattle's 'other paper'?) in October 2007 (I think it was that year).

      I've been following the transient orcas around Monterey for years. There is nothing more thrilling then being in their presence. Beautiful shot.

      Soooooooo awesome! Keep coming back to view this one....just love it. Great shot. Were they chasing something? I imagine a sea lion perhaps??

      I didn't *see* that they were chasing an animal, but from their behavior, I think that's exactly what they were doing. I suspect that a harbor seal had taken refuge under our boat, because they porpoised directly toward the boat, swam underneath us, and then turned and swam under the boat again,
