Mother and Baby--Spy Hop with Mt. Baker
On a moody evening in the waters between Victoria and the mainland, a mother orca spy hops before Mt. Baker. To check the view? To look at us?
An Orca breaches in the Haro Strait on a beautiful evening, soft blue lights of sunset.
Glow of Waters
Two Orcas swim through sunset seas. These are transients with Vancouver Island in the background.
A close pass by an Orca, and a display of the tail. We had amazingly close encounters in the Haro Straits of the San Juan Islands. So moving, exhilarating, beautiful.

An Orca tail flops in front of Mt. Baker in last light and final glow.
Orca whale--it has just surfaced, and is coming straight at us in the boat. I love the way the water forms a garland of bubbles and spray across its nose.
