Elephant seals are really appallingly ugly whilst moulting. But also weirdly adorable.
[Taken 08/04/2012 15:57:28 with my Nikon d80, Nikkor 70-300mm zoom AF-S lens at 300mm, ISO 320 f/5.6 1/2000s. I forgot where this is, but it’s one of the beaches up along the California coast between San Diego and Santa Cruz. I know, that really narrows it down. I pushed the ISO too high on this one; I should have backed it off to get rid of some of the noise, but the sun had just come out and I forgot. Sigh.]
