|The California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) is a coastal eared seal native to western North America. It is one of five species of sea lion. Its natural habitat ranges from southeast Alaska to central Mexico, including the Gulf of California. Sea lions are sexually dimorphic, males are larger than females, and have a thicker neck and protruding crest. They mainly haul-out on sandy or rocky beaches, but they also frequent manmade environments such as marinas and wharves. Sea lions feed on a number of species of fish and squid, and are preyed on by killer whales and white sharks. (From Wikipedia)|

The lively surrounding, foamy surf makes the capture.
Something different from you and while unexpected, it is up to your usual standards. Great action shot, good shot of the sea and enough of the sea lion to see the power of the sea and how they deal with it.
Terrific detail and a wonderful moment.

Perfect timing for this Nature shot.
Such accurate details and exposure in the surf.
The animals seems to struggle to obtain balance.
Spot on with the action shot, great timing.
