Sea Lion pup portrait

A rock outcropping off the coast of La Paz Mexico is home to a large rookery of Sea Lions. Navigating along the edge of rocks I found several pups playing in the crevice just below the surface. After several attempts trying to frame the fast moving sea lions the one finally stopped long enough to capture a sharp image.
