12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sea Lions are sometimes very curious. This particular individual tried many times to catch Julie's attention by nibbling at her fins, mask and performing loops in front of her. She was filming the whole scene but at one point this Sea Lion came right in front her and stayed there gazing into her eyes. It represents harmony between human and marine mammal.
