A break from Serious Photography for some fuzzy mammals. And copiously!
First — somewhat by request — the tubby and turgid harbor seal:
Though the above gets high marks for ... something, the pair does pretty well also; the theory on color differentiation within animals is that the darker area is wet (having been against ice).
Next species, the somewhat more dignified and unarguably more blubberous sea lion:
Above, sleepy; below, proud and with purpose.
Sea Otters win out for fuzziness among aquatic mammals, however:
Above just generally looking attentive (at the boat); but below with pups.
Here two observations: The pup is left (apparently) to its own devices to determine the best time to take a deep breath before diving; and being roughly spherical (marginally less girth than the adult, fuzz included), seems to handle equally well in any orientation.
The Moose! Alaska is very fond of it.
Above, with delicately pointed ballet toes. Below, so entreatingly bashful.
