Synchronised Scratch

By KKmoments
This was taken at Twycross Zoo, the 'synchronised scratch' amused me as I stood watching so i snapped quick but when uploaded i quite like the reflections/shadows and colour of the water....

Thank you for all your comments and support on my self portrait, it did far better than i hoped Smile

Hope you all had a good b/holiday weekend.

This is so funny....I love the expressions on their faces, especially the male in the foreground.
Lovely details & colours, & great reflections.
I also like the mini waterfall in the background.
A great capture.

There is so much of interest here. The waterfall, the great reflections, a multitude of textures and of course the brilliant sea lions.
Brilliant timing to get both of them scratching.
An excellent shot, well done.

A fabulous fun shot Karen, you've timed this one perfectly. You've got everything right on this one. The big male sealion bears a strong resemblance to the walrus of love Barry White!
