Taken on a recent visit to Chester Zoo.
I did wonder if there was something wrong with this sealion, as he didn't look the usual colour for a sealion, but the keeper informed me they came in all colours! So here's one with a whitish face.

THANK VERY MUCH FOR ALL YOUR COMMENTS ON MY THREE KINGFISHER IMAGES.

Great portrait Marian; I love all the reflections and sparkles in the water and that very sleepy content look

Such a different and effective aspect here. Is it swimming along with its eyes shut?

Thank you, maybe I should change the title in line with his wonderful expression rather than simply Sealion. Will think about that.

You have captured the sealion so well and I like the patterns in the water. He looks very contented doesn't he? I have never seen one with a white face before.
