Stellar sea lion popping up to have a look at the photographer. The sea lion appears to pause and is surrounded by blue water and bubbles and the wave created by its body as it swims.

Popping up for a quick recce (click on photos to enlarge).

There was no real herring spawn in our area this year, so the hordes of sea lions attracted by that early spring feast were absent.

But happily, on one of the few days that we managed to get to Drumbeg Park for a walk, we were treated to a brief sighting of a trio of Stellar sea lions.

The first two motored right on by, too fast for me to get much of a look at, let alone photograph. But the third one stopped just long enough for the briefest of meet-ups…

A close view of a light brown Stellar sea lion swimming along, its head out of the water and its body visible from underwater.

…and then it was time to be off again. Spring seems to find everyone on the move.
