Los Islotes Morning

March 24, 2006

Up for the sunrise here at Los Islotes, a small volcanic islet near the town of La Paz, on the Baja Peninsula. The cacophony of life is almost overwhelming as this is a California sea lion haulout. Placid females doze with their pups, as young males mock-battle for position. It is too soon for the real fighting, which will begin in earnest in May during breeding season. The small outcropping is a safe haven from land predators for many bird species, like this great blue heron.
