Booni these photos are just .....  well words can not describe them.   I think you could fill up a memory card really, really fast with all these pictures.
Thanks for sharing   :ecinnocent

Booni,   I always look forward to seeing your photos. This youngster is beautiful, I love the raised feathers over the head. Lovely colours in the feathers.   Thank you

When you go to Grassy Point now, there are so many of these little sweeties calling from their area of bush!

Yesterday, thanks to a call from Gregg, i had a wish come true!
i got to see the Elephant Seal!
He was down on Grassy Point, hauled up onto the pebble beach there.
People were already there when i got there, so i just sat next to them & watched this guy for two & a half hours while other people came & went.
i was a bit worried about him at first, but i think he was just snoozing here.
He was acutely aware of anyone moving or arriving, & would open his eyes to look.
He re-arranged his bulk quite a few times while i watched, even dragging himself up higher on the steep beach.
i was surprised how close he let people get to him.
This first foto just shows you where he is & how big he is, but it really doesn*t.
When i first came down the hill & got to where i could see him over the logs, the size of him had my mouth hanging open for quite a while.
