Day 2 of the #challengeonnaturephotography: He wasn't...

Day 2 of the #challengeonnaturephotography: He wasn’t mad at the #penguins, he was mad at me. I thought I had approached quietly, respectfully, but apparently the roughly 6,000 pound southern #elephant #seal was under the impression I had eyes on his #harem, and told me in no uncertain terms to back off. I snapped a few more photos – including this one – before finding out just how fast a few tons of angry blubber can move: FAST. Fortunately, I didn’t pose enough of a threat for him to give chase for more than a few seconds, and he quickly went back to bellowing and lounging with his females as some 500,000 king penguins and countless fur seals and other wildlife mingled in the biodiverse utopia of #Salisbury Plain, South Georgia. #liveyouradventure #elephantseal #kingpenguin #penguin #wildlife #wildlifephotos #southgeorgia #southgeorgiaisland #greatsouthernocean #salisburyplain
