Saturday Photo Hunt --- Bulky






BULKY


These California sea lions bulky enough for you? They are for me and these fellows were sunning themselves on some floating docks in San Diego harbour when we took a harbour tour last year. It is pretty amazing to me that they can lift all that bulk out of the water and onto the dock but they do manage with relative ease. Click to see a little more detail, if you wish.



HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

What a perfect subject for the theme and great shots. Sea lions are amazing to me. It's hard to see how they lift themselves out of the water. Happy weekend.

I remember reading that they no longer flock to Fisherman's Wharf in San Fransisco. Have you heard that too?

Good choice, jmb! Have pictures of sea lions from a visit to the wonderful Osaka Aquarium but didn't think to use them... a good thing too as this way, you and I have very different takes on the theme! :)

I heard on the news the ones in SanFrancisco had moved in that last few weeks to follow the fish stocks.
