A hungry sea lion grabs a quick salmon lunch on the Sooke River. Unlike harbour seals, sea lions are not often spotted up river, but this fellow wandered past the Sooke River bridge to hunt down a spawning salmon. He then went about dismembering the fish by slamming it against the water before gulping it down. Said photographer Ina Winterburn: “A truly impressive hunting machine.” (Ina Winterburn photos)
