Newborn orca calf swims with its mom.

We were in the outer part of Monterey Bay when we came across this pod of offshore (ecotype) killer whales. They are not often seen in the bay and we ended up spending much of the day with them. It was gratifying to see that the pod had two very young calves, this was the larger of the two. NMFS permit#20519
