Seal, Kawakawa rocks, southern Wairarapa [II]

Seal on the rocks
The same seal, looking languorous.

I esteem your work, you know I do, but this is stunning, and rare, and goes beyond your already wonderful work.

A truly wonderful study of texture, and of colour.
(Where is that book?)

Zhoen said...

I can see a bit of ear.

Another photo that begs to be touched, but the real subject would object with teeth to back it up.

Anne-Marie said...

I'm still amazed you managed to get so close to her.

I agree with Zhoen about wanting to touch. I am fascinated by the texture of her coat.

She is a beauty.

Barbara, thank you. That's a great honour.

Thank you RR. The book is still alive :^)

Zhoen, perhaps it's good they have those fearsome teeth so they don't get stroked to death? ;^)

Anne-Marie, not as close as this looks — a big lens certainly helps. Actually, I was more concerned about disturbing her rest than any risk to myself — another reason for using telephoto lenses. And I agree: she's beautiful.
