Lest you think we only think about serious things here, here are some animal shenanigans I captured in pictures while on the Galapagos. There are moments of animal grace and beauty captured by professional nature photographers, sold to magazines and websites for glossy ads or articles. Then there are the less majestic moments like these, where a sea lion demonstrates an effective way to get someone to leave you the hell alone.
“Hey Bob, what’cha doin.”
“Blowing bubbles, Jerry. I’m blowing bubbles.”
“Wanna go play?”
“It’s too hot. I can’t move.”
“Aww, come on. Please? Please? Please?”
And that’s how you defend your alone time when you’re sea lion.
