The Majestic Elephant Seal

It is always the unplanned events that seem to be the most interesting. Such is the case illustrated in these photographs taken on a trip down Pacific Coast Highway.  It just so happened to be breeding season for the elephant seals just north of Morro Bay. Enjoy!

  1. Gorgeous photos – you have just made my day!

    Have you thought of trying to sell them or enter them into an animal related photo exhibition?

  2. Nice pictures. These creatures stink though, don’t you think?

    • Thanks! I’m sure they do, thankfully there was a nice breeze, and it must’ve been in the opposite direction from where I was, so it worked out even better!

  3. They are absolutely beautiful. They remind me of cats when they sleep in the sun. Great pictures!
