IMAGE OF THE DAY – Enormity

Had to share the elephant seals first – no editing required!

:)

Just south of Big Sur, we came upon an area that was playing host to hundreds of elephant seals.  We was amazed at the enormous size of these animals – weighing up to 5,000 pounds.  It seems these seals make an annual pilgrimage through the Big Sur area and we happened to be part of a fortunate group of interested sightseers.  

It seemed pretty common to see a pair rise up to display a half-hearted territorial joust.  As I understand it, had this been a real battle it would be much more intense!

This little guy popped his head up just as I was taking a shot.  It startled me to the point that I seemed to have blurred all the other seals.

This was a part of a beautiful day 1 of the photo shoot.  Unfortunately, the fog shut me out of all my sunset hopes!  But that’s all part of the adventure!
