It is not that I didn't SEE the advisory signs, warning us to stay 300' away from Elephant Seals this time of year (it is mating season). I just suddenly stumbled on to this kind looking seal, and decided to take a few pictures before I retreated. He/she didn't seem to mind. The NPS throws people in jail for harassing wildlife. I was about 25' away.

I expected the fence to be behind the cow and was thinking "What's the big deal about removing it?" But wow, in front? You'd never know. Great feature of your photo program.
