Harbor Seal
Harbor Seal

In the little bay/harbor next to Newport there is a colony of seals. I think that they are Harbor Seals, not because I saw them in a harbor, but because I cannot think of another kind of seal :-/

This particular seal was swimming around catching fish this morning. He would bring a fish up, fling it up in the air and then catch it before the chomp and swallow routine.

The first picture is when I caught him taking a breather between dives (and it looks pretty grainy...hopefully only until the full sized image gets uploaded). The second shows him between the fling phase and the chomp and swallow phase of the routine.
