closeup photo of killer whale on body of water

When I was on the USCGC Polar Sea (WAGB-11) we went down to Antarctica on Operation Deep Freeze. Our mission was to break the ice and create a shipping lane for the fuel and cargo ship to resupply the base in McMurdo. While we were breaking ice these killer whales were following us looking for food. If you look at the top of the photo you can see some penguins on the sheet ice, that’s who they were looking for. I hope you enjoyed! I’m on IG @65_bomber Stop by and say hi!
