Great shots, Nick. I wish I had a good camera some 30 years ago while on a steelhead trip to SE Alaska. My shop ran spring trips between Ketchikan and Petersburg using a 57 foot steel-hulled trawler as a live aboard. One of my anglers had an encounter with a beaver cutting that had torn a big hole in his waders. We were fishing a stream that emptied into a blind arm of Behm Canal south of Wrangell. As we had plans to relocate midday I decided give him my waders to use and remain on the big boat that morning to repair his and get them into the engine room to dry and also to tie some flies that we were low on. While sitting in the main salon tying flies I heard what sounded like small waves slapping against the hull of the boat and went outside to see what had caused the wake as there had been no motor noise from the others returning. It was a group of Dall's Porpoises cruising fast by the boat headed up into the end of the bay and about 50 yards behind, herding them, was a shoal of 5 or 6 Orcas. As I stood and watched the Orca's suddenly exploded into the group of porpoises less than 100 yards from the boat. I, to this day, retain a mental image of one of the Orca's coming half out of the water with the front of a porpoise sticking out of one side of his mouth, the rear the other and blood going everywhere. It was without doubt the most powerful display of Nature's cycle that I have experienced. It was all over in about 30 seconds and the Orca's turned and headed back out the small bay into the main canal.
