A pair of Steller Sea Lions having a snooze on a sunny afternoon. Looks like the little Shorebird in the foreground is catching some z's as well.

Much like cats, and much like me... :D

Fat-n-lazy...looks good!

Awww, I love how they fall asleep in such strange positions ... I wonder what your shorebird is? We have tons of Western Sandpipers here right now, but I know enough to know that yours is not one of them.

Hi Nawitka, My call is a Black Turnstone. The flipper in the air positions of the Stellers is quite funny. cheers

Move over...they look so cozy, and I could use a nap too...yawn! Wonderful capture! Cheers, pear

Hi Pear, you know each time I visit these guys, I want to go to them and give them a nice hug. But then again, probably not a good idea. thanks for your note, Derek

Reminds me of a song: Beautiful snoozers, wake unto me, Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee ... something like that I think. :D Really nice one Derek!
