Day 53: Stellar Steller

Another non-bird island resident, Steller's Sea Lion. The Farallones are one of the southern most breeding rookeries for this endangered pinniped, most of their significant colonies are in Alaska. Numbers here are low, between 100-200 individuals at the most, so we don't often get close looks at them. This male and immature were hanging out at North Landing, relatively close allowing me to get this picture.
