Bug-Eyed

A Stellar Sea Lion swimming close by our zodiac and giving us a bug-eyed look.  It’s interesting that even while they are swimming by the zodiac they make sure that they keep an eye on us.

 

When photographing Stellar Sea Lions there are rarely a calm moment, when you are focused on one Sea Lion, or a group of Sea Lions, there are others that are splashing around, or popping up in front of you.  It’s definitely quite the dynamic scenario.
