Puget Sound is home to a couple of orca pods, but until yesterday I have never seen them near Seattle. These whales usually hang out in the San Juan Islands and will make trips down to the south Puget Sound. These whales were headed towards West Seattle. I was able to catch them as they passed the Magnolia bluff. Only wish I had a longer lens.
It was an amazing way to wrap up an beautiful, spring-like day.
Here is some excellent video by Jessica Papkoff as they passed Golden Gardens
