This is Sam our local sea-lion who follows the fishermen in and expects the choice fillets at the fish cleaning table at dock. He comes right up out of the water and demands a share





The fishermen alway hose him down which he enjoys



He heads back to the water

thanks, I would not call him cute though, he is about 250KG and the fishermen have great respect for him and dont take risks. He can be fast when he wants

Here's a story for you...

We have some Harbor Seals in New York, small guys, rarely much over a hundred pounds. Nor do they show up in Brooklyn.

So one morning, overlooking this two mile across salt water lake, that I shoot by, I saw a Mastiff in the Middle of the lake. I spent a good five minutes trying to figure out how to save the poor dog. Finally I realised that it was a Sea Lion, and quite a bit bigger then your friend.

So for a good five minutes I saw dog - It was only when the Loons and Fishing Ducks, spotted him and headed for the hills that my eyes unglued...:lol:

The Mind see's what it wants to see - And I see Cute!
