I'd like to thank you for linking this article about Bigg's killer whales. It is a very interesting and informative about studies identifying this distinct species of killer whales. Very significant research.

Great image. The juvenile eagle is certainly expressing its displeasure at an unseen foe.

Thanks for posting this image. One benefit of this forum is being given the opportunity to see scenes unique to another part of the world, I would not otherwise witness.
