Unique Film and Pictures of Killer Whales by Espen Bergersen

The biologist and natural photographer Espen Bergersen has graciously let me borrow one of his amazing Pictures! His films has been shown on the state public channel NRK. No wonder! The films from Mr. Bergersen is absolutely breathtaking. These Killer Whales (Orcinus orca) are on the prowl for herring and in between there is time for some play and fun. The spectacle took place on Christmas Day outside of Kvalnes, Andøya in the county of Nordland.

There are also Humpback Whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) in the mix. Absolutely fantastic. I have seen a lot of whales in packs, but this is really special. An enormous number of animals gathered for this Christmas feast on Christmas Day.

Breathtaking! See Mr. Bergersen’s film on his blog – naturgalleriet.blogspot.com – by clicking here or just click the photo below.
