I thought I'd share the slide show I made last week after a close encounter with orcas in Haro Strait, off the west side of San Juan Island. As you can see, they got very close. And they were being downright garrulous. I managed to record some very interesting sounds, too.

Enjoy, and have a happy Fourth!
