Harbor seal

Phoca vitulina


Harbor seal swimming between coastal rocks and kelp bed


Temperate Pacific coastal ecosystem


Spotted just offshore of Lime Kiln Point State Park, San Juan Island WA; was only able to turn on the camera, zoom in and capture a single image before the seal dived. Wherever it surfaced was not where I was looking; there was no second chance to do a better job.
