the perfect rock

I showed you my first shot of this little guy/gal earlier when I first saw him/her. I didn't realize I had this shot until later. I think he/she is trying out rocks to see how comfy they are.

Here's the next time we saw him/her, looking quite content. I had to edit it a lot since the seal blended in with the rocks and the sun was going down, but that little seal-face says it all.

I think you did a great job of separating the colors to make the seal show up so well. Nice one.

He looks very comfortable on the rocks

Awww...how cute is that little guy. Loved that last shot.

I agree, what a sweet face and he does blend into the rocks which, I assume is intentional. Nature creats camouflage for all of her critters. This is a really cute series ...

They really do blend into the rocks, don't they?

Looks like he/she found what he/she was looking for before the sun set.
I can see why you didn't notice it at first. :) Great find!
Isn't it so exciting to make discoveries like this, much after you've taken pictures?!

once in the South Island, the sea lion blended really well with the rock.

How cool. I would love to see a sealion on the rocks. The most exciting things I have seen around here out in the water are little blue penguins, hammerhead shark and dolphins. All pretty cool, but no seals or sealions.

seems to be a rather small one. Glad you could edit the image and make it visible :)

What a way to be sure you are hidden from danger! I'm always amazed at the conditions other species can live through. I wouldn't fancy living on a rock!
