Excellent capture of the Orca. Sad to hear that Oregon has decided to cull Sea Lions, that are a food source for the migrating Orca.

@Shaun: Sad indeed. Doesn't anyone bother to think about long term repercussions anymore?
Very nice !!!

You are so lucky to get this. I had my eyes peeled on our trip to Cortez but not a whisper. Excellent

@grouser: Tamara and I along with my brother and sister-in-law, paid to go on a "sensitive" whale watch and they were true to their word... we didn't intrude upon the pods and as a result were treated to quite a display. I only wished for a 300mm lens a few times ;)
Excellent timing to capture this orca coming out of the water! It makes for a goosebump experience. :-)

@Steven: We saw a few jumps out of the water, some romping in the pod, and lots of big fins. It was awesome.
What an excellent catch! I hope the salmon populations can support these magnificent whales.

@Steve Rice: I believe the Orca population around Vancouver Island and up toward Alaska is still holding. Thanks, Steve.
Ohh, this is so wonderful! Great captured. I have to admit that I am a little jealous of you.

@Marjolein: Glad you like it. Maybe it will help if I tell you that we were on the water for hours, soaked and cold? Ha ha.
I LOVE THIS!!!! what a special moment to experience! My son from a toddler haS BEEN FASCINATED WITH WHALES. AS AN ADULT HE continues. So whales always bring a tender feeling for me.
