Two incredible photographs the first being a humpback whale lunging through a ball of herring directly toward the boat. A perfect photo showing the herring in the spray, the baleen along the lower jaw and the growth on the pectoral fins. The second shows a female orca coming out of the water on its back with a calf on its belly. A unique photo that I have never seen duplicated or heard of from another guide in the area. Comparing the two photos one would say the humpback is much clearer, more close-up and would win as a photo until you were told that the orca photo was taken twenty of more years ago on 35mm film. So no second chance or multiple digital shots just a once in a lifetime photo.
Grizzly bears on the beach in June through August feed along the shores of Knight Inlet. On this day the meal is the barnacles and muscles they scrape off the rocks. And yes they eat them shell and all. If you look closely a the photo you will notice various areas around the bear that have already been scraped and that was not done by this grizzly as it just came down to the water edge. Some beach feeding is a little different as tomorrows post will show….Visit our Blog
