Revisiting a long time favorite underwater image from way back in 2007. One of my goals for 2018 is to get surgery on my ear and get underwater again. I may need to get readers put into my mask though, my close distance vision has gone downhill with old age. 🤓

Did somebody say weekend? This elephant seal was spotted hanging out on the shores of #MontereyBay National Marine Sanctuary.
.
Each year, elephant seals haul out on these beaches to molt, give birth, and mate. These elephant seals need their rest, and approaching them can be dangerous – always give them plenty of space! If you're looking to get a seal photo like this one, a zoom lens is key.
