Sunday Nature Stills – 08/16/2020

It’s fun to sit and watch the Elephant Seals that congregate along the California coast in the winter and spring. Specifically, it’s entertaining to watch some of them peacefully sleeping on the beach while others slither around fighting with each other.  It’s quite a spectacle.

As a crazy side note, I have read that Elephant Seals dive to depths of 5,100 ft when hunting and sometimes dive significantly deeper than that.  Pretty amazing.

  1. Thanks! Can I put in a request for a higher DPI distribution? 🙂 We’ve all the internet these days, what’s with the 720×480?

    Hope things are going well,

  2. This makes a very nice triptych – seals snoozing, seals congregating, and seals fighting. The second photo is a nice study in color and texture. I wonder how many were crowded together on the beach that day.
