Amazing nature, amazing photo

This incredible image, taken by wildlife photographer Tommy Hatwell, portrays a killer whale (Orcinus orca) attacking a false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens) and her calf in New Zealand waters.

"I have never known anything like this before to be captured on film. This is Mother Nature at its most brutal, a rare occurrence that it was seen by humans, and even more rare that it was captured on camera”, commented an excited Hatwell.
