Explore Orcas Killer Whales, Orca Killer and more!

Photograph by @paulnicklen for @natgeo. Another one of my favorite images in black and white. The orca (killer whale) obviously lends itself perfectly for this treatment. This huge male orca worked hard to chase a ball of herring into the shallows of a Norwegian fjord so it could feed with the rest of the pod. I am so excited to get back to these orcas to continue with this journey of exploration discovery and jaw dropping beauty. It is perhaps the most beautiful thing I have ever seen…

Like other types of whales and dolphins, killer whales (orcas) have a dorsal fin on their back. The dorsal fin is distinctive in that it is larger than most species relative to their body size. In fact, it is one of the characteristics used to identify individuals.

Photograph by @paulnicklen for @natgeo taken in #Norway with@cristinamittermeier.  A large male orca herds a school of herring into a fjord during a feeding frenzy.  This week, I will be showcasing images of apex predators on my personal instagram feed @paulnicklen and marine predators will be shown at @sea_legacy. The relationship between humans and apex predators is an ancient one. Be it sharks, wolves, killer whales or grizzly bears, we as a species seem to have demonized these creatures…

A gorgeous shot a big bull in the Kenai Fjords, probably AD19 Herring Pete! You can just see his massive pecs and eyepatch through the water. Photographer unknown.

The killer whale's primary sense of perception is echolocation. The concrete walls of captivity make echolocation impossible. Society wonders why killer whales have only attacked in captivity, and never before in the wild.
