Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Incredible shot, I'm not sure of understanfing the title (sorry) but the photo is really impactant :)

@Paco Díaz: Thank you, Francisco - nothing to be sorry about and I'm being a bit silly with this post. One aspect of Thanksgiving is that tables across the land are set with WAY too much food. The result tends to be that after the meal - every guest feels like these sea lions - all wanting to place their heads down on the sofa and shut their eyes. Most anyone who lives here would identify with the image.

S'ils ne font que dormir tout va bien... mais je ne peux pas m'empêcher en voyant cette image de penser à tous ceux qui les massacrent

@Marie LC: J'apprécie votre réponse en cette matière(question). Heureusement - la Californie a des lois dures protégeant ces merveilleuses créatures et leurs numéros(nombres) sont devenus grands.

Barbara from Oakland, United States

This is a wonderful shot of the sea lions at Pier 39! The lighting is perfect - also the composition. Great texture detail on the fur as well. 5 stars! Yeah! Hey, I gotta post my version of this sometime!

@Barbara: Thank you for your most generous response, Barbara. And just to keep the record straight - the image was from a trip to Santa Cruz - taken along the outboard section of the wharf. This is what allowed me to get directly above these wonderful, albeit noisy creatures.

Cathy from Moon, VA, United States

They look so cozy.
