When we first got on scene, I could see the two orcas logging at the surface together, and soon noticed that they were supporting the dead harbor porpoise calf between them. They swam around in slow tight circles carrying the body in this manner for a few minutes before they dropped the body and dove deep to retrieve it. Once they resurfaced, they gently pushed the body around for a few more moments. Then, Fluke took the calf and slowly swam along the surface with it balanced on his rostrum, while Racer headed off to forage. Fluke seemed to drop it a few more times as he carried it and had to do deep dives every time to recover it.
We encountered Ino, Coho, Keta and Nyssa as they foraged along the shoreline. Wave Walker had been sighted earlier in the day traveling, socializing and catching up with members from all three pods. We almost got a gender shot from Keta when it breached twice, but both times the belly was aimed away from the camera.
