These photos are not as good as my guests as I was using a small Pentax Opti 6.0 megapixels and running the boat – that is my excuse. But I remember the day in Johnstone Strait off the shore of Vancouver Island we came upon an adult orca that seemed to be teaching a younger orca about breaching. The adult would breach and in less than a minute the younger would do the same. As you can see there were no other boats in the area and this behaviour continued for fifteen or twenty minutes must have been more than a dozen sets of breaching. As a guide we experience many interesting every summer but this ranks in the top ten for me.
It is common to see bald eagle with their wings out in the late morning a result of the early morning fog. The most energy efficient way to dry wings and warm up is to enjoy the sun from a nice perch. There are many mating pairs of eagles along our travel routes so be sure to remind your guides that you want some pictures. It does take time for a good picture with the right background and no branches to block the view.
