They look so sleek against the black rock.

I love these critters, though I don't think I'd want to get too close to one. Great fun to watch, though. The only ones I've seen were off the coast of Carmel in California.

By the way, we did a 4,000 mile round-trip to Colorado to visit our daughter. Took a couple of photos. Got another blog (Yikes!) to post them. You can check it out here (but I know I've got way too many blogs so don't feel as if you have to comment!):

Hope you're having a great day!

They look so cuddly but sure they are anything but! Diane

Seals are especially interesting when they performing tricks, but cuter still when they're jut lying there sunning themselves.

Have a great weekend!

Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

I have seen the territorial males fighting and they can be so vicious.

Big lugs aren't they. Nice shot though. MB

Get close to a group of sea lions like this and they're an assault on the nose!
