KILLER WHALES AND HUMPBACK WHALES HUNTING ORGY


WOW - HUMPBACKS EATING HERRING

Had a breathtaking experience today on the " BIGFISHER" just outside Kvaløy.

Great numbers of Humpback whales where hunting for herring in a small fjord outside Kvaløy Close to the city of Tromsø, North Norway.

I shot these pictures today, and are pleased to share it with the followers of my blog.

WONDERFUL ARCTIC NATURE

The big Humpback whales and orcas are back in Tromsø. What a scenery it is !!
Arctic autumn is wonderful with Aurora borealis - the Northern Light, , big halibuts, big whales, orcas, a lot of big cod and sei, and in two weeks the sun is under the horizon up here at 70´ north. Happy to live up here !!
