Maybe not quite Sanparks related, but rare sighting photos.

Thanks for posting Foxy, very interesting.

I've spent most of my life studying and documenting orca behaviour in the North Atlantic (particularly resident Scottish populations), and it's always nice to see transient pods from around the world. :D
