I should have said that this one was taken on the California coast. Two weeks ago. We have them but they don't come on the beach. And they aren't as cute as this one.

He (she?) looks like he is waiting for something. Love the seaweed dragging along. Great capture, Sandy.

The direct eye contact and very endearing expression makes this a very engaging shot with bucket loads of the 'Aaaaaah' factor.

A fine shot Sandy.
And when I was in Bulgaria on holiday,
seaweed was regarded as a bit of a ''delicacy''.
I was never hungry enough to try it though !!

This superb shot definitely gets my seal of approval Sandy, a most appealing expression from this youngster, no doubt he/she is hoping you are going to bring them some food!
