Very frisky day today! Photographed nine breaches by multiple whales, and saw many more, including an awesome double breach which I of course missed photographing. Tail slap and chin slap sessions >3 minutes, and a creative attempt to spout and tail slap at the same time (see icky video capture photo). And there was the guy doing pec slaps with BOTH pectoral fins - see his sea otter impression in the alternate photos.
About 2 miles out to sea -
Yes, I caught this salmon all by myself. That sea lion over there had nothing to do with it.
Found on kelp. Scanned from 35mm slide. I originally IDed this as Eubranchus rustyus, but now I'm not sure.
Until I looked at these photos I thought this interaction was between two Pink-footed Shearwaters. Upon closer review, it appears one of the pair is a Heermann's Gull (I think)---maybe attempted kleptoparasitism. The gull is the highest bird in both images.
14mm length. Scanned from 35mm slide.
