This is as close as i could get to a mother Hawaiian Monk Seal and her newborn pup. What struck me is the place she chose.
Absolutely beautiful... a little pond that sits above the open ocean..
What a beautiful place for raising a baby!
They are to the middle left of the first picture.
They will be here for at least another 4 weeks, I will go back with a different camera and try to get a closer picture of the pair.
Its be awhile since Ive been to this part of the island... I had forgotten how remote and magnificent it is!
I am an island gal......
