Just when I don't go out in the boat all the EXCITEMENT happens...my husband got all these shots of Enormous whales and I missed all the fun!
He was fishing out of Becher Bay near Sooke when a lot of the Southern Resident orca populations showed up. There were so many I think we could call it a Superpod which is an Enormous pod of whales. They were in Juan de Fuca Straits.
I think the Superpod consisted of J, K and L pods but I am no expert. In all three pods there would be around 82 orcas. He did not count them so I am not really sure how many there were or if all the pods were there.
They were all hunting and playing together. They are fish eaters but he did catch some fish as well. And this is the story he told me when he came home, he did have these few pictures to prove it.
This is what it looks like when a whale comes up to the side of your boat. This is actual picture and not cropped!
Then this is what it looks like as the whale goes under your boat! See that white part.
And this is what it looks like when the whale comes up on the other side of your boat!
ABC is at the letter "E" for an Enormous Pod or Superpod of whales!
And now for the bird section.
These are shorebirds that I took previously out at the same location when the whales did not show up.
These are Rhinoceros Auklets I have heard a rumour that whales like to snack on them and call them chocolate. I have not seen this.
This is another picture of the gulls feasting on the needle fish.
And we always see Eagles out here also...this one is holding a crab.
Have a great week everyone, thanks for coming by to see me.
