the guardian

Ohau Point Seal Colony, Kaikoura New Zealand
This bloke was guarding his horde of mummas and bubs beautifully. Worked for me, i wasn't game on taking him on
He looks a bit grumpy :) I would have loved to see the head of the other seal too but controlling animals isn't easy :)

@ingajohansson -he seemed unpredictable and didn't even notice the other seal until after the photo was taken.
@kali66 -2015 so after the major one in CC. we were over for the food and wine festival in Blenheim.
@elisasaeter @robz thanks very much

the seal nursery pool got devastated in the Kaikoura quake one year ago.

@kali66 - apologises, yes, before that one, the tunnel came down too didn't it. It is just such a perfect spot for a seal nursery too. @777margo -thanks!!
