Last month a pod of orcas was found off of Palos Verdes, near Los Angeles.

Well, they're back. Actually, it isn't clear if this is the same pod or not, but here's some more awesome footage of orcas found in the waters off of Dana Point, earlier this week.

Killer whales are not seen often in these waters, so this is particularly exciting for those who got to see them...though it makes me wonder if they're not trying to find new hunting grounds. Is there a shortage of orca food in their normal hang-outs?
