    This is NOT the famous Shamu, but one of the other Killer Whales from the Shamu show they put on. We sat in the "soak zone", and ... got soaked soon after this pic.

    Part of my 1/365 project: 1 photo per day for 365 days.

      Nice action photography... the only thing I miss here is photo info (camera, lens and stuff)

      We were also in the "soak zone" and came out dry (did the same last year @ SeaWorld Orlando). Lucky you !

      OMG! One of the best SW pix I have seen. Fabulous job! Weren't you scared about your camera getting soaked though? lol. Do you have a waterproof case for it?

      Hi aimzy -- I was concerned, but not scared. I do have a case for it, which I think is waterproof. When they splashed in our direction, I put the camera under my shirt and turned around -- my back got really wet.
