Alaska is known for its abundant wildlife. My trips there produced several opportunities for some great photo shoots. I made this image after an afternoon of whale watching. We came upon a group of Harbor Seals (is there a word for a group of seals?) competing for resting space on this colorful buoy. We circled the buoy several times allowing for many cute shots.
One seal seemed to really want to be part of the group but was not being allowed on. It reminded me of high school cafeterias where the seniors have their own tables and freshmen are not allowed. The sun was low in the sky, providing really good lighting and luckily, a gull dropped in for an added bonus!
