Johnson was safely away from the killer whales and even came ashore, but then took courage and re-entered the water. Soon she was once again surrounded by three killer whales: large (adult), smaller (young) and very small (young).

According to Johnson, all her fear vanished as she looked the killer in the eye, she realized that the animals are friendly. “It is an unforgettable experience,” said bather.

Australian surf photographer Dylan Brayshaw filmed unusual bathing a drone.

“Orcas are the largest family of dolphins, in fact, they are just large dolphins with an unusual color. And we all know that dolphins are very intelligent and very playful animals,” said Regina Eisert, which studies orcas.

Recall that the number of killer whales may be reduced by half because of water pollution of hazardous chemicals.
