Photo by Cristina Mittermeier One, two, three, four orcas pop their heads out of the water to check us out.  Spy hoping, as this behavior is known, is not uncommon. Reminds of a game of Whack-a-Mole! Orca pods in these fjords are quite large and the members of each family travel in tight groups. It is truly lovely to see.

Humbling.  That is the only word to describe what it feels like to have a large predator come and check you out in its own terms in its own territory and with no aggression..just curiosity.

During winter, with temperatures ranging from -40 to -15, the trees in some areas of the Finnish Lapland get completely covered by snow and ice. This makes for a unique landscape, where everything is white and frozen as far as the eyes can see.

Photo by @cristinamittermeier  Happy Mother's Day! There is something tremendously humbling about having 10-15 wild orcas swimming straight at you!  In the northern fjords of Norway thousands of orcas gather to feed on the overwintering herring. This mother brought her calf right beneath me as if to take a closer look at the stranger in the water. Such a privilege to get a glimpse of these magnificent animals in their own realm.
