Photographer fulfils his dream by capturing elusive Shetland Orca’s

A photographer fulfilled his nine-year long dream after capturing the elusive Shetland Orca's on camera.

Norman Watson, 48, had been visiting his son in Shetland after six-months of social isolation when he heard an Orca had been spotted near Meal Beach.

He arranged to go out fishing on a friends boat and managed to be in the right place at the right time to take a once in a lifetime video and a handful of photographs.

Norman, a Draughtsman and amateur photographer from Aberdeen said: "I was visiting my son Sebastian after the lockdown was eased.

It had been 6 months since i saw him last!" "I heard that Orca had been spotted heading North on the west side of shetland so took my chances and headed there as it's close to where my son lives.

One of his friends dad ,Andrew Brown had arranged to take us out on his boat to do some mackerel fishing, the Orca were passing at just the right time, they were hunting seals which was apparent when we cam across them, they were trying to scare the seals off the rocks." "I had been hoping to see the Orca for about 9 years in Shetland but never got lucky until that day.

It was one of the best wildlife spectacles i'd witnessed and i've seen a few things now." "Orca are one of the oceans largest predators and so intelligent, records of them hunting great white sharks so true apex predators.

Also no humans have been killed by wild whales where in captivity it's happened on a few occasions.

Top mammal."
