Unlike yesterday’s post there is no need to explain that this is a large grizzly bear. It just is!

This is a picture of the Humpback Whale known as Guardian breeching in Queen Charlotte Strait. What you can’t tell from the picture is that there is a group of Pacific White Sided Dolphins harassing her. Both dolphins and Sea Lions have been know to pester Humpbacks and Resident (fish eating) Orca. Why they do this is still up for debate. She did several breeches and tail slaps in an effort to shake the annoying dolphins.Visit our Blog
