Zalophus californianus wollebaeki

The Galapagos sea lion is essentially a coastal animal and is rarely found more than 16 kilometres out to sea. Individuals are active during the day and hunt in relatively shallow waters (up to about 200 metres deep) where they feed on fish, octopus, and crustaceans. Sea lions and seals are also capable of making extraordinarily deep dives of up to 200 metres for 20 minutes or more, then rapidly surfacing with no ill effects. When ashore, the Galapagos sea lions rest on sandy beaches and rocky areas in colonies of about 30 individuals. They are extremely gregarious and pack together on the shore even when space is available.

Hello Manyee,
Another great shot of a beautiful Sea Lion who seems to be soaking up the suns rays at the moment. You can tell it must have just gotten out of the water as it's hide is still all slicked down.
Exceptional detail and excellent DOF as even the pretty orangish red crab in the BG is in sharp focus. Overall a fine shot technically with just the right amount of exposure. Great job!!

  • Great
