Sharing a Secret

Two Stellar Sea Lions coming together and sharing a secret, well more likely plotting their attack on us, and our subsequent demise. It really does look like they are talking about us, as the darker one closer to us is giving us a bit of a side-eyed glare like he is saying “I see what you mean”.

 

Photographing Stellar Sea Lions is always fun and dynamic because there are so many of them on the haul-outs.  It’s hard to isolate them, and to focus on the right spot, but when you do, it makes for some really great images.
