A Mother's Love can be Furry & Wet.


This seal below is pregnant to bursting, she can't even move, and is about to give birth at any moment.




Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day, Rhea!

Hub and son gave me a little pocket camera so that I don't have to carry the bigger Canon sometimes. It's a tiny thing, a Sony Cybershot? I think. So I'll be checking it out to see how the pics compare. Of course it's so compact, it might get lost in my big purse. LOL
Hope you are having a great day!

Andrea said...

I hope your day is fab!

Rhea: Well captured and a fitting tribute to the Mothers.

Rhea said...

Crystal Chick - Thanks! Happy Mother's Day to you too! Congrats on your new pocket cam! That's awesome.

Andrea - Thank you! I hope your day is fab too.

Fishing Guy - Thank you! The mommy and baby seals were way too adorable.

Amber said...

Yes I was pretty upset. I knew the moment I hit the button what was happening. Oh well, I won't ever do that again!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Mother's Day1 I love the seal photos!

Kat said...

Rhea these are great. Where were you to take them? Wasn't one of those part of your header before you went to flowers?

That pregnant one does not look happy :-)

Law Student Hot Mama said...

Aww . . . heck . . . those are so cute they made me want to grow some whiskers! Ok, not quite, but you get the idea.

carrie said...

Those are wonderful and good looking sea lions. It must be cool to see them!

Great shots too!

Lilli & Nevada said...

wow those are some fabulous shots of the sea lions great job

Rhea said...

Amber - Thanks! I really feel for you losing all those photos. It's like a horror movie! lol

Bleeding Espresso - Thanks and Happy Mother's Day to you too! Thanks for coming by!

Imac - I fell in love with the seals as well. I felt bad for the pregnant ones who couldn't even move...but I kept hoping one would give birth while I squatted and watched for over an hour. I was hooked!

Misty Dawn - Thanks! I love that you started this meme. It is so much fun and I love seeing what other critters people capture.

Simply shannon - Thanks for coming by and happy mother's day to you toO! I love seals. They're just adorable.

Rhea said...

Kat - Thanks! Yes, the last photo was one I used as my header for a long time...it's one of my favorite photos ever. I can just feel the motherly seal love in it. lol

Carrie - I took those pictures in California last year...at Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel.

Law Student Hot Mama - Don't go growing whiskers yet! You might scare Sumo Baby...or maybe he'll just try to yank them out. Ouch!

All Things BD - Thanks! Happy Mother's Day to you too! Did you see many seals when you lived in California?

Life is not a Journey... - They aren't sea lions, they're seals...I wish I had pictures of sea lions! I didn't see any while I was there. I'd love to though. Thanks for coming by!

Lilli & Nevada - Thanks for stopping by!

Rhea, I always get weepy when I see baby animals clinging to their mothers. I just loved this pic!! Thanks for sharing and Happy Mother's Day!!

Catherine said...

Carmel seems to be photographers' paradise?
The 2 last seems to be made of silver.

david mcmahon said...

Can I give that my seal of approval?!!!

Rhea said...

Chatti Patti - I was so touched by how concerned the mommy seals were about making sure their babies kept up when they were in the water and on the beach. It was adorable.

Catherine - Carmel/Big Sur is seriously a photographer's paradise. I have hundreds of photos from my one trip there. I'm almost scared to go back. I think I filled up TWO memory cards.

David - lol You never stop with your witty banter. You crack me up. Thanks!
