    I'm amazed how easy the sea lions catch their food. I'm very happy for sea lion Lily and Seneca Park Zoo with the Daily Dozen end results!

    I remember this shot. It was Sep 11 . I was listening to the news.My husband checked the daily dozen. This shot was selected. He called me to see this shot. Two of us were wonder to see this. We voted this because it was one of the amazing shot we have seen ever. Love this shot! Love the shiny black skin of this guy and love this moment you catch. Too late but Congratulations my friend. :))

    Gorgeous photo!  I love the curves of this majestic animal, and the mixture of colors, and the seeming effortlessness and grace shown. I see this photo and think, there is no way I could compete with that.  Does not stop me from loving it though!

    Capturing the contrast  between the soft and graceful body of the sea lion and the back drop of hard unyielding rocks is the brilliance of this photo! WOW!

    Wow, what a great photo Wayne.  The clarity is awesome. It's an image that looks like I'm physically standing there.

    @Saeedeh Kouhkan - Thanks Saeedeh - This photo and my Rhinos in action are some of my favorite shots this year. This sea lion "Lily" is such a sweet animal...I had to make some prints to give away to the people that take care of her...plus she received one too! :) Thanks again and have a wonderful day! :)

    @Diana Pumar - Thank you Diana...I'm sure this sea lion would be great in the outfield...if the ball was hit right to her...unless it was a big piece of squid! "She would run for it!!" 

    Have a great day! :)

    @janet Peterson Thanks Janet - Lily is a wonderful sea lion!  I had to make some prints for her and the Zookeepers for their memories....Today's Digital World of Photography is easier for everyone to capture images!  It's not about if we get a perfect shot every time.  It's what we do with it after! Photography is an art and everyone is different so get out there with your camera and enjoy... :)   

    PS. I wouldn't think of this site is about competing. It's to share what we have to others that love photography! :)  Thanks again and looking forward seeing some of your photos!
