Orcas on Video: Some wild encounters
I thought I'd share some of the video footage I managed to get during the first couple of weeks of July in the San Juan Islands, including a couple of kayak encounters, while working on my next book (working title: Of Orcas and Men: What Killer Whales Can Teach Us, due out in fall 2014 from Overlook Press). As you can see, developing any video skills is definitely a work in progress. I need to get a directional mike, I probably shouldn't shoot immediately after paddling seven miles, and I shouldn't use a video camera the way I use a still camera.
Still, there are some fun moments here, especially when the campful of 12-year-old girls my daughter was leading got an up-close look. Enjoy.
