Thanks Ken. It was quite interesting to watch the bird persist. The big guy would wake up and snort or shake and then fall back asleep, at which time the bird was right back at his meal! Don

These are fun and interesting to see, Don. Looks like you were close maybe uncomfortably close?) to these huge critters. The action when the males go after each other must be pretty impressive.

These southern elephant seals look different than the northern elephant seals we have in California. The southern cousins look better fed and less beat-up. Thanks for sharing!

While I have never seen an elephant seal in person I have a very long and somewhat funny reason for liking these remarkable looking animals...one day I'll share the story...
What is lurking off shore to take advantage of the blubbery meals?
The skua looking for some protein and the gull being a bit of a vampire are fascinating shots!
This looks like it was a pretty special adventure Don...keep us posted
