I'm told that, once a year Herring come into the shores of Vancouver Island's east coast to spawn, resulting in this amazing transformation of the sea colour to emerald green.
(Sadly, strong winds and no tripod resulted in this far from good shot, but at least you can get an idea of the colour! - and yes, I will get rid of that date imprint!)
Of course the seagulls arrived in their multitudes too, to capitalise on the opportunity
of food (the fishing boats provide a feast at this time!)
2 days later with calmer conditions
Below you can see the sea lions waving flippers above the water's surface: I am informed that, in doing so, their flippers absorb warmth from the sun and so regulate their body temperature - amazing!
and here are scores more sea lions doing just that
A keen photographer!
