Lovely capture.

storms there this year.

That's some yawn, if that is in fact what it is, Sylvia: certainly a rather novel 'pose' provided for you.

I like the contorted pose Sylvia, a very different and humorous wildlife image from the norm

Truly superb wildlife image. It certainly has the looks of a Leopard Seal. Just half the size I would guess. Saw Leopard Seals once and they are very big and scarey.
