Newfoundland Orca pod take down a Minke Whale!

August 14, 2010

And we were there!! Wow, it was so cool when we witnessed this amazing kill south of St. Johns NL., near Witless Bay. I was hosting a photography workshop with my 3 guests, when we were lucky enough to get on this amazing nature experience.

Eco-tours and boat captain Tyler and his 22' Zodiac took the 4 of us out to the site in some pretty rough water. It was difficult to get images, as the boat was tossed around, but after 2000+ shots, and 2 hours, it was just too dark to continue.

The sot below shows the Minky's nose on the far left,coming up to the top of the water for a split second. Thanks to Glenn, David, and Chris for being there to enjoy this event! And thanks to Lori Colbert for arranging this trip!


  1. What day did this incident happen? Was it the 17th of August?
