If any marine biologist or oceanographer want to use them for research be free to do so. If more images of the sequence are needed for your research, DM me and will try to provide more material. What we see here is two male orcas hunting a baby humpback whale, fist they bit and ripped off part of his pectoral fin, to disable and drawn him. Then his skin removed (not sure if they eat ir or just throw it away so they can get to a specific organ). At the end, few remains where eaten by sharks. I hope this material can advance the understanding the behavior of the often misjudged orcas
to think that by visiting a dolphinarium “is the only way that we and our children could see and interact with dolphins” is pure egocentrism and is just an anachronic mentality. Dolphinariums, zoos and bullfights could and should be a thing of our dark and savage past; as it is now the Coliseum. What is legal and what is ethical is just a byproduct of our market economy. Choosing where we invest our money wisely is the best way we have to alter and disrupt social anachronisms (Dolphins at San Benedicto, Revillagigedo)
This curious fella tried to scratch my lens near Clarion Island. A few asked what’s going on here, so here it goes (excuse my english). A Sula bird approached me and submerged its head while the rest of the diving party was getting on board. The upper part of the photograph its what we call the water mirror (the surface); and the lower part is just an underwater scene. The image seems divided because a wave is going over the water mirror (where the bird is sitting).
