Speckled

Harbor Seals have a wide distribution along the coast of British Columbia, and we see them on many of the trips that we go on.  What makes photographing them so interesting is the variety in colors and patterns (or “speckles”) that you can see from one seal to another, and from the other marine mammals.

 

This image was photographed from the zodiac, and we were below the Harbor Seal which was hauled out on rocks.  Therefore it gave us the opportunity to photograph it with with the blue sky in the background, which helps highlight the coloration of the seal.
