Fisherman's Wharf - Harbour Seals

Some Victoria residents such as the harbour seal above prefer to live under Fisherman's Wharf, thus avoiding costly moorage fees while yet retaining easy access to tourists for research purposes. The three seals below, for instance, are attempting to find out if it is possible to communicate with these migratory creatures. Good luck!

These are really nice photographs.

If I had to choose an unusual post that really made me feel good, this one would be it.

Please, whatever you do, don't visit my blog today (Wednesday) as I lost my mind, I think owing to medicine from my hospital stay, and posted some really gross stuff. I certainly don't want to spoil your day.

j'aime beaucoup cette photo du phoque, très belle et très réussie.

I love this picture of the seal, very beautiful and very successful

I completely agree with you! So many of the animals are clearly people watching hobbyists. My mother has been trained to throw stale bread out for some ravens when they call.

Yes, the seals tell me that though humans can be trained they are not really trustworthy. "One minute they're petting you and going all goo-gah and the next minute you're a steak or a fur coat."
