Sea lions, Part II

While snorkeling with the sea lions in Galapagos, they came right up to our masks.  They were very curious about us, and it was so awesome to have a wild animal in its own environment chose to interact - not for food, not for any reason but free choice and natural curiosity.  One touched me with a flipper!  They went by so fast it was very hard to get a photo, and I was using a cheap disposable underwater camera too.  I would have loved to get photos of the young ones playing with sea stars and sea urchins - very much puppies of the sea!!!  But these are at least decent enough shots to remember the experience by.
