At least that's the way I see it. It seems to have a different snout than mom. So I'm wondering if it's a boy who will have that big elephant trunk one day. Seen along the California coast.

Very nice wildlife shot, and he's a handsome young lad, Sandy.

I reckon you're right...his schnozz hasn't come into its own yet. Imagine if his father was the Jamie Farr of the seal world. This seal would be in for a surprise.

Beautiful pin sharp capture, Sandy. The depth and detail are superb!

Nice one for the seal family album, Sandy, Lovely whisker detail. I find the driftwood and seaweed interesting features of the image, too.

The big one looks rather grumpy and the smaller one much happier, a fine shot of this pair
