Elephant Seal Passion

I'll admit, this blog is a bit of a digression from my usual blogs.

About a week ago, some friends and I went to see the yearly birthing and mating migration of elephant seals, on the beach just north of San Simeon, CA.

Now one wouldn't think that a two and a half ton male would make the best lover, but I was able to photograph one such Casanova flagrante delicto.

My caption: "I love it when you do that!"

What you don't see in this picture is the time spent in this activity, which is roughly five seconds.  I guess in the world of elephant seals, that's a pretty long time.

I hope I have inspired some of you to think seriously about Valentine's Day coming up.
