Bow riding killer whales off Mexico: CNN

Seems like the killer whales off Mexico have a penchant for bow-riding. Photos of bow-riding killer whales were captured twice last year in Loreto in Baja California (http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/post/killer-whales-put-on-rare-and-amazing-show-for-boaters-off-mexico/) and then yesterday CNN circulated this story about a couple celebrating their anniversary off La Paz Mexico who witnessed the same. Wow! Watch the video here: http://edition.cnn.com/video/?/video/us/2013/04/29/pkg-killer-whales-swim-alongside-boat.wfla#/video/us/2013/04/29/pkg-killer-whales-swim-alongside-boat.wfla

I had a quick look around and it seems there is a video of bow-riding killer whales from Canada back in 2006 too (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0biz6z_tFI). Rest assured, this is rare, but what a phenomenal experience it must've been!

Video of Orcas vs. Sperm whales in southern Sri Lanka

INCREDIBLE! Orcas battling sperm whales off Sri Lanka

What a way to break my silence....(and apologise for the lack of activity here. I have heaps of stories lined up so stay tuned). This one is hot off the press and definitely worth checking out - look at the images!!! Unfortunately I was nowhere near the incident, despite this being my stomping ground, but wow wow wow!!!
