    A pod of killer whales line up to surf the bow wave of a container ship on a serene day off the Canadian coast.

    The unusual occasion was captured on camera by John Porter, the vessel’s captain, as the ship headed from the Victoria Pilot station to the Deltaport container terminal just south of Vancouver.
