I suppose it's on it's back with some tasty morsel hidden on it's belly: nice shot of the 'action', Ron.

Oh, these are such wonderful gentle creatures and I'm so glad they have made a good comeback in nature. To think they almost became extinct after all the slaughter for fur early in the prior century. I love how they lie on their backs and eat or clean their faces Smile

I see them at home often. But too far out in the ocean to capture. They float around on their backs, sometimes with babies on top of them. A great capture Ron......Sandy
