Johnstone Strait, British Columbia


Resident orcas thrive on salmon.  As these fish gather in coastal waters and prepare to travel up river to spawn, the orcas congregate for a summer feast.  Orcas are highly social and intelligent animals.  With lifespans similar to humans, they remain in their family groups for life.  This male orca with a dorsal fin over 6 feet tall travels close to the rocky shoreline.  The setting sun illuminates the mist from his exhale as he gracefully breaks the surface of the water.
