A pair of young northern elephant seals. This is another shot taken on my California trip. Their parents, and the rest of the adult seals, have already headed out to sea to feeding grounds. The young remain behind on the beaches feeding in the relatively protected coves. But eventually they too will leave the nursery and make their way in the world.

Funny, I was going to ask you if you had visited Ano Nuevo State Park to see the elephant seals. I visited there once during the molting season and it was quite..........smelly!

Nice shot for your 'touching' theme...
