Killer whales/ Orca - transient type
Monterey Bay, Pacific Ocean, California, USA
Orcinus orca
There are three types of recognised Killer Whales - resident, transients & offshore'. Physical differences are subtle, the main difference being habitat preferences, behaviour, primarily feeding behaviour. Residents spend the summer months eating fish in British Columbia and around San Juan Islands, transients hunt marine mammals and travel long distances up and down the coast and offshores live mostly offshore dn their habits are poorly known.

Three's a Pod - Orca Trio Takes Monterey Bay by Storm!

EDITORS COMMENTS
. In this photo print, captured by the talented Francois Gohier, we are treated to a mesmerizing sight in the Pacific Ocean off California's coast. Meet FG-EC-018, a magnificent transient type of killer whale, also known as an orca. These intelligent marine mammals belong to one of three recognized types - residents, transients, and offshores. While physical differences may be subtle among these majestic creatures, their habitat preferences and behaviors set them apart. Residents indulge in fishy feasts around British Columbia and San Juan Islands during summer months. Transients like our photogenic trio here have a knack for hunting marine mammals and embarking on long coastal journeys. As for the mysterious offshore orcas? They prefer living mostly out at sea with their habits still shrouded in secrecy. As they gracefully glide through the crystal-clear waters of Monterey Bay, it's hard not to be captivated by their sheer power and beauty. This snapshot showcases unity within diversity as these toothed whales swim together harmoniously in perfect synchrony. Let this stunning image transport you into the enchanting world beneath the waves – where pods roam freely amidst breathtaking seascapes. Join us on this visual journey alongside FG-EC-018 and embrace the wonders that nature has to offer!
