Kaiwi The Hawaiian Monk Seal
Kaiwi, an endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal came to shore on Queen's Beach this morning (August 17, 2017) to take in some rest and relaxation. She is known to NOAA animal officials as "Kaiwi" a name given to her when she was born in the Kaiwi area on the island of Oahu.

The endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal is the Official State Mammal of Hawaii.

The photos were shot between 7:30 am and 9:00 am. I used my old Fujifilm FinePix HS10 with a long zoom lens.
