A word from the photographer: “A meeting you dream about but think unlikely... except that this time, nature decided otherwise. That day, the water was clear and calm. We had been sailing for a few hours to observe the marine fauna, when a radio call from a fisherman to our captain indicated the presence of orcas in the area. We decided to wait calmly for the hypothetical passage of these splendid marine mammals. Suddenly, one, and then two orcas appeared about a hundred meters from our boat. I gently slipped with my guide into the water, with my back against our boat. The dream came true: a family of orcas passes twice, to offer us a pure moment of happiness. This is Nature: fragile, unpredictable and magical at the same time.”
