Sea Lion Kiss British Columbia
Coming in for a Kiss

One of the most exciting parts about photographing Steller Sea Lions is the sheer number of them that exist within a colony, allowing us to witness (and more importantly – photograph), interactions among them.

 

Coming in for a Kiss demonstrates the interactions among the sea lions, and in this particular instance the guys in the water were trying to convince the other one to come join them in the water and come and check us out in the zodiac.  It took some convincing with some loud vocalizing, and even a kiss, before she got in the water.
