Last weekend, there were sightings of three orca pods around the Shetland coastline. Here's hoping for more of the same! This is the 27s pod (named from the ID of the matriarch) passing Outrabister along the Lunna peninsula in the North Mainland of Shetland. Find out more about the wildlife you might capture (on camera!), just follow our link in bio. 📸 @shetlandwildlife #IslandsOfOpportunity
