The pic was taken during my visit to Davis station, Vestfold hills, during early February 2014.

Description: The bull elephant seals are sun bathing on the 150km long Davis beach. They come here to moult, shed the old skin and get into the new ones. What I understand is that the magnificent malodorous beasts are howling “Wake up guys......winter is coming” .
