Seals and More Seals



Seals. What? There's no seals in Truckee! Nope. These are from mid-May, when I made my last trip to see my seal friends at Mad River. Saw a few (tiny) babies. Their heads were much too big for their bodies, very cute indeed. It was in the middle of the day and the light was less than ideal- that mixed with sea spray didn't make for super sharp images, but who cares. I love these guys! Also, I'm not too sure how to save the videos so they aren't as sharp as they should be either..ah well. I counted close to 50 adults that day. Harbor seals are adorable. Scenic Sunday My World

Seals, I adore them. One of my first memories from childhood was Sea Lion Caves in Oregon and then seals and sea lions along the California and Oregon coast. I love the softness of your images, beautiful Jill~

Those are the cutest little puppy dog faces in the world. They seem to know you are photographing them...they are willing to give you their sweet little eyes in attention. Adorable!

Your seal shots are great, Jill! I love the up close and personal view. We have seals here, but they are out on the rocks, and they don't allow you to get close enough to photograph! ~karen
