I liked funny pose of this seallion a lot:)Eye contact and composition are beautiful as well.
Thanks for posting.
I wish I were a Kid again. Back in the mid perhaps early 1950's I went to Marineland in Florida. It was the first of it's kind in the world...the whole world...and it reminds me much of this. Some other places have them now of course...bigger....better..and even sell draft beer:-)
A fine image Janice...I would wish perhaps to take some of this some day once more...Wonderful blue...it looks so....so...New Zealand!:-)
Color, content and capture are good.
I believe this species has proliferated into Oregon and as far north as British Columbia. They are a growing population and have become a problem to fishermen.
The entire salmon fishing season was canceled this year because of declining salmon runs. It was not caused by sea lions but salmon are a favorite food of theirs. A number of sea lions swam more than 150 miles(250km) up the Columbia River in search of food. They made it to a dam where they were feasting on salmon just below the fish ladder.
Six were trapped and caged by the state fisheries department and were awaiting transport back to the ocean when they were killed by angry fishermen.
So what happened here? Did you hold your camera upside-down while this poor sealion had to balance that log on its back (chuckle)?
Those lovely big eyes kept track of your actions and I wonder who was more fascinated by the goings-on, you or the sealion? A good capture considering the thick Plexiglas screen and the density of the water. It looks like it is an open top aquarium with natural light coming through the surface and you made good use of the natural light. A little spot of OE on the belly, but nothing too serious or distracting.
Good effort and TFS.
PS1. I see the Hurricanes allowed the Force to upset our picks already in the first game for the weekend. Let's hope the rest of the weekend turn out better. I don't know how many games I've missed out on, during this year, with last minute point margins being altered or the swing winning points being scored. Anyway, enjoy the games.
PS2. Not that I think it is open season on workshops, but I also felt this uncontrollable urge to play around a bit with your posting (chuckle). Hope you don't mind too much.

The pose and POV here carry the day!
The workshops may have improved it some..But I think in this case everyone should just take an "inverted" perspective..and smile :))
An enjoyable visit once again mf,

first I thought you dive too. But I understand you have taken the photo through a glass window? Very good photo! Great portrait of the sea lion!
