End of the Year Slideshow - 2009 Orca Highlights

Happy new year! It was a good year for the orcas, with five new calves born and no deaths in the Southern Resident killer whale population. I had some fantastic sightings, such as the greeting ceremony, whales surfing in the freighter wake, and being on scene the first time little J46 was seen.

In celebration, here is a look back at my whale sightings from the 2009 season. I hope you enjoy this five and a half minute slideshow, featuring the song Staralfur by Sigur Ros. Here's to a great 2010 to one and all!
