A Leaping Orca in Seattle

Leaping Orca Mural, Seattle, WashingtonSeattle, Washington ~ Several years ago

It was fun to encounter this leaping orca on the side of a building not far from the waterfront in Seattle. Unfortunately, I was not careful about taking the photos, and I had no thought at the time that they'd be part of an animal art blog. I like strange juxtapositions, and the hyper-realistic leaping orca with the industrial pipes is one of those. See below for a close-up of the orca.

In that first shot, it looks like the whale is going to jump right into the mouth of the pipe! That's quite a mural.

Did you hear about the trainer that was killed by an Orca here at Sea World a couple of weeks front of a crowd of people. No one seems to know just what happened, but the Orca got mad about something...very tragic incident.
