167-30A Say "Aaah"

Elephant Seal

California Central Coast at Piedras Blancas

 

The inside of the seal's mouth: that is the honest color recorded by the camera. My guess is that the wall of the seal's cheek is so thin and translucent that the sun illuminates the inside of the seal's mouth.

 

Looks like a snowy egret in the middle ground
