California :: Piedras Blancas Elephant Seals

Near San Simeon, on the Coast Highway, is a special beach. One where the Elephant Seals come ashore for a few months of each year to give birth, breed, and molt. The female and juvenile elephant seals were on the beach beginning the molting process.

  1. These are priceless. They remind me of one of the cats we used to have; although her name was Rabbit, she always reminded us of a little seal, and those bottom three poses look so much like her.

  2. OK, gotta ask, how close can you get to these magnificent creatures! Fab photos! As always!
