[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just a few Sea Lions making themselves at home in the Newport, Oregon Yaquina Bay. It is unbelievable just how loud these creatures can get....but I love them all the same. The fisherman are not quite so joyous over them.....they eat the Salmon that they fisherman are trying to catch.....

Take care,
Bettina Marie =0)

Real life scenario and lovely waves from the side. Good take. Ganesh

These great creatures our part of our world; they eat salmon, "their" food only when they are hungry. However,
the fishermen take, often, more than they need just to sell and make money. In fact fishermen are the cause of a lot of evil to us MANKIND.
This is indeed a great image.
Great POV & DOF.
Lovely composition. Very well presented.
Great clarity.
Best regards,
