I took this picture of a killer whale while sight-seeing in Resurection Bay near Seward, Alaska. Sometimes whales like to pop up above the surface and have a look around. This behavior is known as "spy-hopping."

This whale was a member of a pod who were known to be mainly fish- eating (as apposed to other pods who prey more on seals).
