|Hi Joe - it does look artificial doesn't it! It had just crawled out of the water and it was early in the morning so that explains the look a bit. I had been trying to see them for 2 days - we had got tp the usual 'haul-out' spot by river on two occasions but didn't get any shots as they all took off as we approached. This shot was taken on the road ou of the park as we were laeving. We stopped on a bridge and were able to set up ans wait for them to emerge - it was really weird as the first thing you were able to see were the 'bubble eyes' sticking out of the water.
