Floater

A Harbor Seal (with his buddy in the background) seeming to just be floating in the water.  In actuality, he is actually laying on a stump that is under the surface of the water.

 

What I like about this image is the dark green water, which was caused by the surrounding trees, and also the blondness of the seal’s face.  If you look closely you can see that the really blonde portions are actually dry fur, that he has kept out of the water, with the darker patches being wet.
