Monk Seal by Greg-frey Monk Seal by Greg-frey
My first uploaded picture since returning from Iraq. Picture taken at Kaena Point, Hawaii. A Monk seal in the wild. Almost didn't see him and nearly walked up on him.

And he looks like he's smirking at you for not seeing him. Very nice picture.

Enjoying taking pictures back in the States?

Thank you. Yeah, I enjoy taking pictures back at home now, however, it's forced me to reevaluate to how I take pictures and of what I shoot. I was used to kind of having a photojournalistic view of things and that doesn't work so well here.

That's true, but some of the pictures I've seen since you got back were rather striking. Your composition and the quality of the photographs is good. As long as you can keep yourself supplied with good photo-material, it seems like you'll do well. =) Best of luck.

Wonderful shot! I can see him looking at you with his eye. He looks sad.

Thank you and I thought he looked kinda sad too. Probably didn't want us there.

Probably. My friend tried to take a picture of a massive 8 point buck and it started chasing him
