A relaxing morning

A lot of fur seals in the biggest colony in southern Africa. I was visiting the area of Cape Cross, Namibia, and I stopped in this huge colony of fur seals, where live thousands and thousands of individuals. Even if the atmosphere in my photo seems to be very "relaxing", in reality the site is very noisy, because of mums and little seals shouting to find each other, and adults seals fighting for the females.
