Elephant Seal


Playing around. We missed the mating and the fighting. It was a very quiet day when we arrived. There were lots of spectators. I’m not complaining. But I had the wrong camera lens. No telephoto. _DSC2413But you do what you can. And the spiffy lens allows me to enlarge quite a lot. I don’t know enough about seal behavior to comment. Mostly they lay like lumps occasionally rousing to move a little. It was a much fun as watching a tourist tan._DSC2219There weren’t even that many seals. Of course it would help to read the signs and directions which told us to go right. We went left. To the right…. ah, well, it did finally sink in. More seals!
