    A first row seat on beaches along Peninsula Valdes brings with it an adrenaline packed experience with Mother Nature unplugged. It is here in Patagonia where Orcas have learned the unique skill of intentionally stranding themselves on the beach to catch sea lion pups. We spent 2 weeks, 10 hours per day sitting on the beaches of a private sheep ranch straddling the northern coastline of Peninsula Valdes. © Bill Klipp 2016 -- Check out my Photo Website at:

    Bill captured a great moment here. The massive orca is struggling to get into the shallows to capture a sea lion, creating chaos around her, while all the other sea lions on the beach are watching. It gives a sense of a wild place. Great composition.
