Passing Orcas

A pod of Orca wales went by just before dusk tonight. By the time I noticed them they had just about passed the house so I grabbed the camera, jumped into the car and headed down the highway. They were moving fast but I managed to intercept them at the city pier where they put on a show.

I think this is the same pod that Les photographed going past Nanaimo yesterday. They are probably headed up to Robson Bight for the summer.
