Alex Mustard - I am Jealous!
A young California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) rests in the canopy of a forest of giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera). Kelp forests are the most wonderful environments and the way this sealion seems so at home reclining in the embrace of the giant kelp leaves always makes me feel very jealous!
