Of Sea Lions and Herring

At this time of the year, the waters hereabouts turn turquoise as the herring come close to shore to spawn. Following them are massive herds of Steller sea lions, and tonight, as I was heading home, I stopped to take a photo of one of those herds:

And a close up:

Look at all those flippers and tails! Just hanging around, arfing, after a long day snacking on herring. And that’s only one of many herds that were in and about my area – an amazing sight, an amazing sound (sea lions are loud!), and with all that herring, well, an amazing smell!
