Chris: Nice shots. I like the orca the best, and I believe it's an odontocoet--a toothed whale--so you get to count it.

But it is in the family Delphinidae along with all porpoises and dolphins plus pilot whales, pigmy killer whales and false killer whales.

I find dolphins even more difficult to shoot than great whales so maybe I will have to include Orcas (which are a lot easier too shoot than dolphins because of their size) in my dolphin album!

You're right, though, the scale and the difficulty of seeing much out of the water makes them challenging, but as you and the responders have shown, it's challenging, but not impossible to get interesting shots.
