[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Hooker,s Sea lion on the beach of Cannibal Bay.

Cannibal Bay

Cannibal Bay owes its name to the human remains once found by a surveyor here rather than to any man-eating past. Today the area is a breeding and resting ground for Hooker's sea lions and elephant seals. Although they may seem tranquil enough, they can get aggressive if disturbed and as the place name suggests have been known to attack humans in the past. Try not to come between a seal's path to the sea or approach their cubs.

He looks like he's posing just for you Jan. I''m amazed you were this close to capture this photo. I love the ocean in the background and his color against the sand is nice too, well done.

Yes Jan, you don't want to get too close to them, do you? He looks good there with the sea behind. The colours are very natural, it is a good capture, well done. Thank you.
