Orca by Teh-Pandacoon Orca by Teh-Pandacoon
Killer Whale (Orcinus orca)

Hello, my name is: Orkid

Fun Fact!: The Killer Whale is actually not a whale - it's the largest member of the dolphin family! :nod:

Even if her face isn't perfectly in frame, the lighting/shading/reflections on her skin are very nice. :heart:

Wow, this is such a lovely photo! :O

Never saw an Orca "in real life", but I think (and a friend told me the same ^^) that this captures the colour perfectly... so.. thanks for bringing her a bit closer (:

Do you know which one she is? I haven't learned how to ID these whales.

That's soo cool that you got to be that close :o I love how it turned out just black and white. It's kinda abstract, and that really adds to it :love:

I was so excited to find this one. I didn't even know how my pictures turned out until I had gotten home from that trip. It was quite the pleasant surprise :)
