A rare grey killer whale stands out from its family as it plays with them after a hunt. Unlike typical black and white killer whales, this young albino orca is grey and white.

These photographs capture the one-year-old orca making a splash with its family as it engages in playful jostling and tail slaps. Whale researcher Gary Sutton, 34, photographed this behaviour - which is typical of whales after a hunt - at Cowichan Bay in Vancouver Island, Canada.
