2 of 4. Fight Scene - Two Alpha Males challenge each other for the territory and female mates. Elephant Seals of Piedras Blancas

2 of 4. Fight Scene - Two Alpha Males challenge each other for the territory and female mates. Elephant Seals of Piedras Blancas, San Simeon, CA, 31 Jan 2009. Photo by Michael "Mike" L. Baird, bairdphotos.com, Canon 1D Mark III, 300mm f/2.8 IS on gimbal head and sturdy tripod. I probably should have been on shutter-priority @ >= 1/1000th, as aperture-priority at f/5.6 here only yielded 1/640, introducing some subject motion burr into the image.
