Sea Lions

Sea lions make me smile. Like us, they are social animals. I was constantly drawn both to their interactions and solitary meanderings. Sea lions are vocal. They would have appreciated Emile Zola’s quip: “I am here to live out loud!”And they harrumphed and carried on with enough gesture that I felt confident I knew what they were talking about. They did turn their heads toward me occasionally to subtly remind the others that I could hear them too. The sea lions seemed to consider me inconsequential yet noted my presence. Hmm. Some day, I’ll bulk up.

These photos are from the Galapagos Islands.
