    My favourite is the last photo of the pelicans. There’s a wonderful sense of movement.

  6. Wow, there are so many seals on that beach – bet it was noisy! I love the pelicans, esp. when standing on a bluff and they go by in formation at eye level. They make me think of pterodactyls!

    • I love the pelicans too as they fly real close. I was talking to someone when these flew right past me so I wasn’t so focused. Here’s a good website about the seals. http://www.elephantseal.org/

      • Thanks for the link, Michael, it was interesting to learn about the biology of ‘catastrophic molt’ and how the males follow the females/juveniles later in the season. Nature’s ways always fascinate me!
