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.]

Not the best editing job — I’m on my iPad — but one of my favorite shots nonetheless.

Decided I had to get some calories. Couldn’t handle the thought of cooking or Taco Bell. Cue Saturn Cafe. Those are Saturn Spuds, and are quite good! I just wish the menu had mentioned the nightshades in it.

That lighted item in the left-hand corner is my iPad, where I’m currently reading Persuasion. The mug contains coffee, under the theory that caffeine helps cramps.
