After last nights mono submission, I'm back to the seal shots from last weekend.

What I liked about this is the almost Sea lion like pose. I was asked later if I saw "that one" that looked like a sea lion, can't remember who said it Wink - besides he got me into trouble by running off with my baking tray Wink
