A plan

An orca going straight at his prey, in this case a school of herring. The pod works together and takes out the herring by stunning them (either with their tails or with clicking). Amazing behavior to watch and meticulously performed by the pod. I've never seen animals eating so gently, and with such respect for each other, taking turns in catching the stunned fish.We could learn from them!
