A mixed plate adventure...
I am soooo glad he was just sleeping. Great pics.
I want to be one of those in my next life please...
Whew! Asleep. Heheh. (S)he looks so happy...
seallll!!! oh my gosh! mom did i tell you last week i went to diamond head and there was a seal chilling out on the beach? it was awesome. i forgot to tell you earlier.
oh and thistle.. i wasn't trying to confuse you the other day. i was trying not to say anything so i wouldn't hint to who my mom is
So cool!!! Thanks for sharing!
Ooooo! A monk seal?
Great pictures, but better still was the comment from (not-so)anonymous, "mom did I tell you..." Loved it!
Oh how lucky you were to get to see him/her napping. Lovely.
PHEW omg I thought this was going to be the saddest Wordless Wed ever! But then it turns out to just be cute. :)
I'm no biologist, but I do believe it is a Hawaiian monk seal. When they beach themselves like that they totally knock out and sleep for hours. Usually the north shore lifeguards will come along and put orange cones and, no shit, construction yellow tape around them, but this was early, about 7 am, that I was walking on the beach.
Glad that he was just sleeping! Lucky you with those walks on the beach to see things like this. Green with envy.
I thought he's dead and good thing he's not.Hope you can visit mine.http://www.inthespiritofdance.com/2008/11/wordless-wednesday-no16-angel-or-devil.htmlHappy WW!
Great shots!Purrs,Abby the ManxHAPPY WW!
oh thank god..i was really afraid there for a minute...but is that a zoom shot or did you actually get that close!!?....can just see you tip toeing up LOL...and anonymous...has she discovered a new way to break news to you that might not be easy to break in person...Brilliant! LOL
Thank goodness just sleeping!
The dreams of an Hawaiian monk seal. I wonder if they include blog fame?
I learn so much here. I can't believe they just beach themselves and then sleep. Too funny. And a little scary bc I really thought....uh...Thanks for sharing these great photos.
Oh, thank your telling us that he (she?) was just snoozing...What a lovely set of photos...thanks for sharing them...Hope all is well with you!:^) Anna
didn't you think it was a log until you got right up to it? (wish i was there.)
Yes, I thought it was a log, then when I realized it was a seal I started shooting pictures. That last shot I was pretty close, but then zoomed in some too.
What amazing pictures! How fabulous to live in a place where you might just happen across that!
Whew...glad he was sleeping.
That is one huge seal. Wow. Impressive. And I'm so relieved. I would have burst into tears if you'd told me he was dead. Whew.
