Photograph by @paulnicklen taken while #onassignment for @natgeo 40 miles off the West coast of British Columbia. A lone male orca breaks the surface’s tension on a rare calm morning. We are packing up our boat to continue to search for marine life that exists in the deep blue water somewhere between the Western seaboard and Japan. Please follow me on @paulnicklen to see more images and stories as they unfold throughout the summer and fall. With @cristinamittermeier @natgeocreative
orca whale. Amazing shot
Photograph by @paulnicklen // It was a surreal moment to be lying motionless in the sea while a huge male orca worked hard to drive a ball of herring towards the surface. The orcas use the surface as a natural barrier to corral the fish. Check out the whole story in the July edition of National Geographic Magazine @natgeo and please #follow me on @paulnicklen to see my favorite orca pictures from this incredible experience.

[VIDEO] It is one thing to be a fly on the wall and witness this rarely seen feeding event. It is another to have the orcas take a few seconds to check us out: foreign visitors in their ocean. This great sequence was shot by my good friend, Göran Ehlmé. You can hear how important acoustical communication is to these orcas. You can even hear a humpback whale in the background. Please #follow me on @paulnicklen to see many more images and videos of orcas in the wild.
