Ruffles breaching

J1 / Ruffles breach

I thought I would share this capture. As J1 / Ruffles is an older whale (thought to be around 53 or so), he is not seen breaching as often as some of the younger animals. Taken the same night as the J1 & J2 visit photos, J1 / Ruffles pulled a "half" breach as seen above. That night was filled with wonderous orca activity and I urge you to check out the whole series from that trip. It was a special moment, one definately worth sharing.
