California sea lions rafting, shot on two different days. It’s one of my favorite behaviors to watch — these sometimes huge rafts of sea lions, floating together with flippers up. The flipper position helps them thermoregulate as they’re resting on the water.

[Photographed from a respectful distance on shore w/tele lens — m.zuiko 100-400mm (200-800mm equivalent)]
