Day 10: Rising tide

I noticed this harbor seal during my evening stint in the blind. Harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) frequently haul out in the intertidal and are determined nappers. This one seemed oblivious to the tide rising around it. There can be over a hundred of these little seals on the island this time of year. One very pregnant female was spotted yesterday so we may have the first pup of the season soon.


  1. I love your photos, Annie! So glad you're doing this. You have an eye for finding beauty.

  2. Amazing! It's hard to tell this is Marine, except for the seal. I like that.
