In April 2011, I once again arrived on the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge to start another season of seabird research working with PRBO Conservation Science. In my seventh and perhaps last season, I decided to start a photo a day challenge for myself. The challenge is to share a new and interesting photo for each day I am on the island this year.
I love this spot and so do the sea lions. They are constantly frolicking and chasing each other in and out of the pool. When the swell is big from the north, it periodically pours water over the back creating temporary waterfalls that the sea lions splash around in. It must be quite deep because while I was sitting taking pictures of it, a large elephant seal surfaced in the middle of it, apparently having been in there the whole time.
