Above is the link to the birds on the dock before we left.

It was a wonderful day with weather to match!
Walking on the Washington Ferries is always a treat for us photographers. Most of the time its an opportunity for landscapes/scenery shooting.
But, every so often you have luck on your side and chance always favors the prepared mind!
Orcas live here year round(resident orcas that is). We see transients too but they prey on many things while our residents have a strict diet of salmon.
I always feel fortunate to see these amazing mammals to observe as their mere presence is a special treat. Cannot explain why but once you experience it, you'll never forget....

One of my favorite places. Thanks for sharing these. The Ferry System up there is second to none.

Very nice, Rob! Orcas/ Killer Whales are fascinating animals. Very intelligent, but unpredictable. Several keepers in various venues have been killed by captive Killer Whales. If you ride the Puget Sound ferries often enough, you might run into my son. He's an engineer with the ferry system.

Very nice! I've taken the Washington State Ferries between Seattle (Anacortes) and Vancouver Island several times and always have my camera handy. Never got photos of the orcas before, so I'll have to try again!

Thanks!

Bill
