Here are the last of my wildlife shots from our San Juan Islands excursion with Puget Sound Express. We came upon a Stellar, or Northern, sea lion enjoying some lunch. It was another of many exciting moments.
Lunch was probably a salmon. Now…how did we find this one sea mammal in a very large body of water?
The poor guy was being mercilessly harassed by a flock of seagulls that dive bombed him, pecking at the fish in his jaws.
Think about that today if you’re among those who have a feast planned for Easter and dread dinner table conversations. It could be much worse.
There were other sea lions not far away that seemed content with their lot.
