Sea lion whiskers always fascinate me. I caught this one's nice set of wet whiskers in the hi-lites of the late afternoon sun as it was cruising around the different barge-islands there at the pier, deciding which one to sun itself from.

Love the sparkles in the water too. Great close up of the sea lion's whiskers. They do rather glow don't they.

The back-lit whiskers are striking in addition to the 'wet diamonds' you captured!

Excellent - the light and movement of the water around the subject pulls this into a delightful abstraction. A very compelling image
