This one was taken with a bit of luck at Marconi Beach, Cape Cod. I was playing with the camera taking photos of the surfers riding the tide. The seals were popping their heads here and there. So naturally I was following the surfers while at the same time paying attention to the seals. This encounter could not have been unnoticed. The surfer appeared to just about to stand on the board when he noticed the seal. Short staring competition.
