While I was standing on Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf, a large California Harbor Seal surfaced and created a set of figure eight ripples as it slowly glided past me, just below the surface of Monterey Bay. Its head was nearly even with a jellyfish I had been photographing as it drifted alongside the pier, just below the water’s surface. The scale incongruity between the two sea creatures is apparent. An instant after I made this image, the harbor seal suddenly lunged towards the jellyfish. I was able to make an image of that as well, but all I could record was a huge splash of water. Both harbor seal and the jellyfish vanished along with it.
