Seals at Kaikōura Seal Colony

Walking back to my car at Point Keen Viewpoint, I was disappointed to not see any seals. I’d been looking around the coastline for about half an hour that morning and didn’t see a single one. Then as I was about to leave, I heard some loud grunts. Asleep on the boardwalk in the shade were two very large seals. These are southern fur seals. Keeping my distance and zooming with the camera lens rather than getting close, I was able to capture this photograph. Just as the seal opened his big eyes. Clear communication from the seal that I was standing close enough.
