They may not look like it, but Dragon Morays tend to be very shy and take some time to get close enough to achieve an uncluttered background. Canon 100mm L lens, F14, 1/125, ISO 100 (no crop)

'Sunning Sea Lions' - These Steller sea lions near Vancouver Island were so content with staying in the warm sunshine that not many wanted to get into the cold water with us. Can't say that I blame them!
