A Breathtaking Photo

This month’s featured photo of an Orca comes to us from Eileen Redding, a winner from the Nature Canada 75th Anniversary Photo Contest.

I was on a whale watching tour; east of Campbell River, BC, in the Strait of Georgia. It was a grey, gloomy day. We were only about 20 minutes out when we spotted the pod. I feel so fortunate to have seen them, and to get four breathtaking frames of one breaching in front of us.

From all of us at Nature Canada, we also feel fortunate that Eileen was able to capture such a beautiful moment and share it with us. To learn more about Orcas, please visit our species profile.
