This photo of elephant seals was taken at Piedras Blancas along the Central Coast of California last April. Mr. Man and I were vacationing before The Babe was born, and we had such an amazing time. We spent a couple of mornings with these lovely animals at sunrise and were all alone with them on the beach. It's so interesting how the animals congregate together on land, but they are solitary at sea. You can read more about these amazing animals here.
