The water surrounding this orca whale looks like molten gold during sunset. This cute orca is excited after having killed a sea lion and was doing backstrokes, spy hopping, tail slapping etc.
The behaviour of killer whales is variable and quite entertaining for visitors on a whale watching tour from Northern Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
