Today's photo was taken last week off the coast of the South Bay by researcher Alisa Schulman-Janiger of the American Cetacean Society Los Angeles chapter. Schulman-Janiger is the director of the local Gray Whale Census and Behavioral Project and an orca expert.

The photo shows the female orca named CA51 (left) taking a peek of what's above the water with her 3-year-old daughter, Comet. CA51 and her family have visited the South Bay multiple times over the past few years.
