Sea Lion Island have the only breeding colonie of Southern Elephant Seals in the Falkland Islands. The breeding season is from september to november. In this time the males struggle to control the harem of females with visual and acoustic threat displays or actual fights. This is one of the portraits I made from a male who tried to impress another male.
