Description

In spring, when gray whales cows are leading their calves on their northward migration, they must choose whether to hug the shoreline or cross deep water in Monterey Bay. If they do not choose wisely, they risk meeting "Emma" and her family. Emma is the matriarch of a pod of killer whales that specializes in gray whale calf predation. Here, she and her daughter speed through the bay toward a recent kill.
