    Thank you for looking.

    All shot with my Lumix GF3, some with the 14-42mm stock lens and some with my Helios 70-210mm manual focus lens.

    I appreciate your comments.

    Many thanks

    Why thank you, cropped a few of them including the last one. This one was shot with my Helios 70-210mm not bad for a £9.99 lens. Edited them (sharpened and quick fix) with Zoner..... nice freebie program.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment

    I have never seen them in that color. The species that we have here on the California coast are the darker-colored variety. Thanks for sharing the images.

    The seals have been coming to this beach for years. This was my first time going and apart from the cold it was fantastic. Over the years with more and more people coming to see them more and stringent rules are applied. There are posters telling the people not to touch the seals as the pups will be left by the mothers, it's real basic nature rules yet the people who come need to be reminded!!! Look don't touch! It's a simple rule but apparently people still ignore that rule.

    There are now two fences between you and the seals, as the seals lean on the fences and you can guess the rest (sorry if I am harping on but some things are not pets).

    There was over 1400 seals on the beach, they are counted once a week - and the pups number was over 1000!!

    It was a truly lovely day despite the cold to be that close to nature and I just wanted to share it with you all. I am glad so many of you like the pictures.
