Keeping close together, a family group (aka pod) of orca whales cruise the Pacific waters with the scenery of the Coast Mountains in the background.
Pods of resident orca whales are commonly seen just off the coast of Northern Vancouver Island.

I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1DS, aperture of f/9.0, exposure time of 1/800 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 330mm.
