The kelp gull was attacking the sea lion, on a safe distance from above. At Enderby Island, part of the Auckland Islands south of New Zealnd.

Thank your peargrin for your nice comments. This quarrel lasted for several minutes, and it was enjoying to sit and look at. Cheers, Mats.
Hvilket fantastisk syn, en modig fugl - bedste hilsner Nygaard
Det är lätt att vara modig när sjölejonet inte kan flyga :-). Tack för dina kommentarer. Hälsningar, Mats.
Fantastic scene Mats, I have to ask, who was the winner? Greetings, *Saludos desde México!
Thank you very much Alberto Jáuregui for your kind comments. Physically, the sea lion was the winner since it didn't move away. Mentally, I do not know, perhaps the gull had better arguments. Saludos desde Suecia, Mats.
