Taking a Breath with Orcas

Orcas have fascinated me my entire life. They are beautiful and graceful, yet powerful and cunning. I took this shot between Victoria Island and Gavin's point by Washington State and Vancouver. The pod was off distracting everyone in the boats, while this mother and calf were making their way around the edges. They are truly beautiful animals.
