Photo: Peaceful Orca Resting Line

A northern resident killer whale pod (orcas) enjoying a beautiful sunset in a resting line in Johnstone Strait, British Columbia, Canada.

Photographing killer whales for almost 25 years gave me many opportunities to get a good insight of an orca's "life". I saw them jumping (breaching), spy-hopping and racing, I saw transient killer whales chasing and killing dolphins but I also saw transients play. In short, I saw a lot of different behaviour and situations with my all time favourite (with bears) animals.

If one asked me today what I enjoyed most photographing them, then I have to point them to this picture which is for myself one of my very favourite ones. A peaceful setting in Johnstone Strait, just a few ripples on the water, the sun just set and turned the sky into beautiful colours and a family of resident orcas resting. One of my favourite settings for sure. What the whales offered me in this shot was the big bonus, the "cream on top of a desert", which was one of them spy-hopping to make this shot perfect. Perfect for me anyway!

I photographed this picture on one of my Wildlife & Scenery Photo Tours on the British Columbia coast, off northern Vancouver Island. ... continue below the picture...

... I very well remember my guests too as they just stood on the boat, we had the engine off and they just simply enjoyed this unique situation.
