    Sea Lion Versus Octopus…?

  3. Nice series of photos, good of them to tell you their names 😊

    • …ha ah..names gleaned from contact with local nature buffs…and it’s nicer than referring to them by the numbers on their tags…yep, they’re tagged…”sealions are as rare as tigers” as my good friend Dee likes to point out…

  4. Great pics, thank you. Is the fish biting the lion? Good to see, that you get off the exercycle, into your great outdoors.

  5. Fabulous!!!
    I’ve never seen any of these sights for real. Glad I get to see them here.

  6. That has gone so wrong, but I can’t delete it. It’s really annoying the inability to delete I think.
