During our trip to Kangaroo Island, we made our way out to Seal Bay Conservation Park (http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/sealbay/home). Here you can see the seals basking in the sun, along with baby seals nursing from their mothers (they were about 18 months at this stage). It was quite a site, and very beautiful! We made sure to get there as early as possible to get the best light during their opening hours.

This guy here put on a nice show for us, and even tried to come a bit too close at one point (we scurried away just in case, but then realized he was just curious and wanted to play). Per the rules of the park you can’t get very close to them so we didn’t want to get into trouble. :)

    Hi Nicole. Great shot. How did you find the 70-200 reach? Was it too short? Ever think about a 2x extender? I will be going to Patagonia in a couple of months and will have access to some wildlife! Thanks,
    Joao
