[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Aussie Sea lions at Seal Bay on Kangaroo Island Australia. Seal Bay Conservation Park supports the third largest colony of Australian Sea-lions with a population of approximately 700 (5% of the world total).

Australian Sea-lions have a life span of between 17 and 25 years. Males mature at 8-9 years, at which stage they start to develop their distinctive white manes.

The male just came from the ocean and wandered up the beach and gave his mate a kiss. perhaps title should be "honey i'm home"

Hi Ken,
Great sequence of images. Good exposure and sharpness. Colour balance looks bang on. I'd probably crop both images to remove the top sea BG...might provide tighter framing.
