Wildlife Highly Honored: Walrus

(Lance Carter)
“Male walruses haul out onto rocky beaches in summer while the females raise the young. Though they can be loud, temperamental, and aggressive, they are very social at times. A large group of males were sunning on top, alongside, and all around each other as they indulged in the warm summer rays. My trip to this remote location finally paid off once I spied this sleepy walrus with the right expression and proper light.” - Photographer Lance Carter
