Puget Sound Orcas
In this photo taken Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, the dorsal fin of an orca whale is seen as the animal swims in Puget Sound in view of the setting sun as seen from Seattle's West Seattle neighborhood. An estimated dozen or more killer whales swimming south past West Seattle gave residents a spectacular sight Monday as the sun set. Howard Garrett of the Orca Network says the whales identified from photos represented all three Puget Sound pods - J, K and L. He says this is the farthest south the orcas have been seen this year, and it may indicate a shift that typically happens in the fall. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
