Island Bound

The British Columbia coast along the Johnstone Strait is one of the most scenic places to photograph marine wildlife.   While travelling on our mothership, the Ocean Light II, and enjoying the scenery, this Killer Whale surfaced, and the angle makes it look like it is heading straight for the island. And if it were a transient, it might have been going to find a harbour seal or sea lion to eat.
