K21_L2
On sept 6, 2007 about 5:50pm about 2 miles off shore of San Juan Island, we had a superpod. You can see a mating sequence here. K21 (Cappuccino) lifts L2's (Grace) belly out of the water with his pectoral fin then he lays on his side and then she rolls over on her side as he rolls under the surface and we don't see him, one can only assume what is going on.
