Unbelievable images of a killer whale jumping four metres into the air
Killer whales are so majestic and beautiful that it’s often easy to forget their high position on the food chain. With images like these, it’s a sharp reminder of both their incredible agility, and their terrifying power.
These images, taken by Christopher Swann in 2013, capture the final moments of a pod of orcas chasing a single dolphin. Mr Swann said the whale was jumping at least four metres into the air in waters just off the Mexican coast.
