Now that we have drones, we’re able to see footage that would make Jacques Cousteau jealous.

There is finally a story out of ‘Russia’ worth the time it takes to watch it — overhead footage of a pod of Orcas on the hunt.

And the Orcas have hit upon a Minke whale off by himself.

Fair warning, this is wildlife behaving the way nature intended. The water WILL turn red. That’s the only warning you’re getting.

Yes, it does look like its gasping for air, doesn’t it?

The deadly chase took place in the Avachinsky Gulf of the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of far-east Siberia.
The wildlife photographer Mike Korostelev was out filming the whales for the Russian Orca project, when he spotted the animals beginning their hunt.

It was a pretty unusual sight, too.

It was incredible to see the hunt – they’re quite rare to see. Usually we see other orcas who feed on fish, but never on a whale.
He says he was thrilled to not only have seen this unusual happening, but to have caught it on camera too.

That’s pretty badass.

Grandpa would approve.

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.

Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
