Photographer's Note

On our driving trip back from Christchurch to Picton along the coast via State highway 1, we were on the look out for wild seal/sea lions. Lucky to have spotted a group of seals somewhere between Kaikoura and Blenheim, stopped the car and found a way down to some rocky beach.
This mammal might looked cute but it was quite hostile and can't really get close to them as they normally will either shy off or attack ! This cutie here was about 6ft long but did really move when been approached, they tend to look very lazy I would say.
Nevertheless, it was quite an experience being close to some wild animals that normal can't be seen or none at my home country.
