As an avid photographer of wildlife I am always looking to capture images of large groups of animals interacting with each other. With this in mind I headed out to Astoria, Oregon last spring. I had heard that there were masses of sea lions on the docks as food in the area was plentiful. I was able to focus in on this group as they were lying on top of one another in a rather small area. I believe this iamge is compelling as it draws the viewer into the scene as if they were witnessing this behavior themselves.
