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.
