Orcas! Killer Whales! Fair Isle! Shetland!

Seal Hunting pod of Orca.

I saw six Killers, a Bull, two female, one young adult and two young ones.

I was waiting for the the Killer Whales to come south after seeing them go around Sheep Rock. so i drove to the south Harbour and waited on the Skaddon tip and they came to me eventually. While I was waiting I could see a few Seals looking at me, I though great! bait! Sure enough drama in nature right infront of me.

A seal kill! blood in the water as I look on.

Blood in the mouth of a young Killer Whale feeding.

Watch a bit of video!

I have way more but it takes forever to upload to youtube from here with our crap wifi.

The seen of the crime.
The South Harbour looking back on the Auld Haa
 and the rest of the Isle.

and then suddenly they are gone...

but what fun to see and take pictures of... big smile here!

but the Puffins are still here...

and we have lovely sunsets seen from the north of the Isle these days.

everyone enjoys a good Sunset.

You've got to love it...
Fair Isle has plenty for us hopeless romantic dreamers types.

cheers Tommy
