Picture of the Month


   I spent a week in Monterey Bay, California this month, trying to photograph Killer Whale / Grey Whale interactions, without success...  However, I did find a colony of California Sea Lions on a breakwater near Fishermen's Wharf, and took this shot of two pups sleeping in the warm afternoon.  (Notice how they use one another - and a third sea lion - as a pillow.)   A simple picture, but a nice one.
