A pair of orcas gave Greater Victoria residents a show to start the week.
In a rare, close-to-shore encounter, two orcas were filmed off Esquimalt on Monday afternoon.
In a video shot by Miller Fernandez, which he later shared on Facebook, two orcas can be seen swimming along the shoreline before heading out to sea.
In a comment on his original post, Fernandez noted he later learned the two are transient brothers – T049-A2 and A3.
