After stopping in Telegraph Cove (see yesterday’s post) we head back onto the water for the second half of the day which means stellar sea lions in the spring and fall as the migrate between California and Alaska. This September day is unusual because all seems quiet on the sea lions haul out. Normally when there are this many stellar sea lions on one rock it becomes a mass of moving bodies with all of them wanting their complaints heard.
The northern resident orca pods contain more than 230 orca in total. The northern pods mean north of Campbell River on Vancouver Island and extending the British Columbia coast. This is a large male resident orca. Good to get a photo with much of the back exposed. The timing is harder than one would think.
