Fur Seal dive

Sun bathing happily on the Nee Islets at the mouth of Doubtful Sound. Most of the fur seals didn’t seem to bothered as our large boat slowly approached them. This little seal was either hungry or camera shy (I suspect both). Taking wildlife photographs like this can be very challenging from a moving boat, long lens or no long lens.
